Yeah and then he needs to buy all new lenses. Derp.

As for the camera system, it's the lenses that makes the system.

Don't bother getting a "kit" lens.
Don't agree. There are many kit lenses capable of taking stellar shots. Everything is modified in post these days anyways.

I don't look at any variable lens (ie: 18x55) that don't have a constant F2 to F1.4 F-stop.
Disagree... Yes it's desirable to shoot as wide open as you can at times, but as we all know, the wider the aperture, the bigger the money in most cases. Besides, landscape and architecture photography is generally done stopped down and MOST lenses are sharpest closed up a couple stops.

Big aperture lenses are nice and necessary for DOF work but they're not required for a good photo.
