    As the title, does anyone know if the kit lens supplied with the 400d is an upgrade to the kit lens supplied with the 350d??

    Possibly buying a kit lens from someone who has recently purchased a 400d and looking to move the kit lens on, and will buy a 350d body to go with it. Just wondering if the 400d lens is any better, thus making my 350d body + 400d kit lens a better option than a standard 350d kit (if that makes any sense :confused: )

    Any comments most welcome...

    No there isn't any difference between the kit lens for the 350D and the 400D; they are one and the same lens.

    However, just to confuse you, the kit lens does come in two flavours - normal and USM. The USM version costs a bit more and apparently has a better focusing motor (called USM, hence the name). I own the USM version of the kit lens. It looks identical to the normal, non-USM kit lens, it just says "Ultrasonic" on the cap and the lens.

    But if the 350D and 400D are both advertised as containing the kit lens then both lenses will be identical.

    No it isnt.

    The kit lens from the older 300D is a little different from the one supplied with the 350D,
    but
    If you bought a 350D body only, you might have got a 300D kit lens specification .
    The 350d had (II) for ver 2 on its faceplate. There is a discussion about the lens in dpreviews ful review of the 350D on differences if any

    The Kit lens supplied with the 350 is the same as 400 and 30D
