The right copy of a lens makes all the difference. I have never had a poor 18-55, other than distortion at the wide end (which I expect for a standard-grade lens) they have done very well. I had a Tamron 28-200 in the past and it was quite good but was more color-fringey than I liked at the telephoto end. Ans as for trimming the rumored 'fat' I try often and somehow fail more than I try . My last attempt was to go all-in on top notch zooms, but after some bargains and trades I have 18-55 and 55-300 but top-notch primes!
