Default Lens Advice

I was wondering if anyone had some advice on the following dilemma.

I use a D30 and with my 50mm prime lens most photos are sharp, saturated and look generally good. If, however, i take the same picture with my Canon 28-90 ef USM lens the pictures are flat, unsaturated and visible soft. Is this a common problem with this lens. i got it with the camera. I am now looking to replace it, possibly with a Canon 28-105 3.5-4.5 zoom. Is this lens of higher quality (i know the build quality for one is better!), would the factors above imporve in my images or am i destined to disappointment with all zooms but the 'L' range?!?!

I really need to sort this out. MOst people on the net concur that the 28-90 f4 is bad... anyone used the 28-105 f3.5?

I don't shoot Canon, but there are many here in the forum that do, maybe you can ask their opinion in the Canon SLR forum. I also have a link that might be of interest to you:


The lens that manufacturers usually bundle with camera bodies are usually just to get people started, and do not have the same quality as others that are offered (you probably new that already). Again, refer to the link above for some opinions from various users.
