Before everyone dismisses the 28-80mm kit lens the minute someone seeks advice on purchasing the F80, you might also consider Ken Rockwell's review, which has been posted on his website.

Subjective, yes... but he was impressed enough to say this...

"Holy Moley! It is sharp at all apertures and focal lengths, BETTER than the three-times as expensive 28-105mm AF zoom, since I saw no focus errors with this lens as I did with the 28-105."

He calls it the Best all-around cheap zoom!!
