The buying philosophy I seem to adhere to...
Not really an oppressive package to haul around. The kit lens is lighter than it looks.
Love being able to go from wide (above) to tight (below) without a lens change.
Nothing really amazing but when I blow stuff up and become a pixel peeper in Photoshop I am impressed by the sharpness and resolution of the 24-105mm lens. Maybe I should have just stopped there?
