I have the same lens and use it most of the time. I would like wider though! Anyway I also have the fixed 35 and do like it as well. I find I tend to find more useful positions I may not have looked for if I had the 18-55 on. I know it's a matter of being a bit lazy, zoom in get a good picture but with the 35 I have to move and find in many cases I am not in the same position I would have been because in many cases I can't just walk forward but also have to side step and even adjust my height in some cases. Things I hope become second nature with the 18-55 eventually!
