if you have the money, get the different lenses, right now i have an 18–55, and the next one will be be a *-200, then stepping up after that, or maybe a macro lens after that, but hey, it’s your money

My D40 came with a 18–55, then I got a 70–300mm Sigma with a macro function. I got very used to changing lenses for wide angle at 18mm to zoom at 300mm. The Sigma lens was only $300 US and works perfectly.
(NB: My sigma lens is manual focus only and therefore takes some getting used to before you can focus it quicker than auto focus would take)

only 300 ? i should check if i could get it shipped to holland, it sounds like a pretty descent lens for more precision shots, thanks for the link
