Trying to get better IQ than my 18-55mm kit lens tho.
Can you post some shots you're not happy with? While indeed there are better lenses, the lens is rarely the thing holding most people back. It's technique (not choosing appropriate aperture and shutter speed, not using a tripod, not controlling focus adequately, etc).

I hate to admit it, well not really.. but you are correct. As I have been reading and practicing, I am finding fault in my composition and when to choose the correct aperture and shutter speed to capture the exposure the way I want. Part of me wanted to start off with a better lens, despite knowing I need to work on the aforementioned. It's a work in process..
