I am torn between the kit lens and the 18-70mm for the D40. I can purchase the D40 body alone so I can choose either one or neither. The 18-70 has a bit more range and seems to receive better reviews. Has anyone had experience with it? Thanks.

Check http://www.slrgear.com/reviews/index.php for the tests and reviews. The Nikon 18-70mm has a higher rating and is generally considered to be one of the best kit lenses around. I have had excellent results with my copy.

Oh yes the Nikkor 18-70mm f/3.5-4.5 is much better then the 18-55mm that comes along with the D40.

Here are a couple of pics taken with both D40 & 18-70mm

Thanks guys for the feedback. I finally decided to purchase the Nikon 18-135mm lens, even though the 18-70mm is considered superior. I find the increased range makes it the perfect all around lens and it rarely leaves my camera.
