I post too Much on Here!!

I skipped the kit lens with my T1i/500D, and bought the EF-S 17-55/2.8 instead. After switching to a 7D, I got the 5DII with 24-105/4L and the IQ was so much better that I stopped using the 7D with anything other than the 100-400L. Once the 1D X arrived, I sold the 5DII but hung onto the 7D, expecting to use it for 'reach' but the keeper rate and IQ were better with the 1D X so I sold the 7D as well.So you buy a crop body it comes with a kit lens. The EF-s lens doesn't need to leave your kit just because you bought a FF body. It still fits on the crop body it came with. My 5D II and 50D went on many rides together over the course of several years.
