not really. If your buyer  is a D40/D40x user, they might just get the body. some people have enough money so as not to settle with just the kit lens. most people sell the kit lens later on, though it's always handy to keep one.
It's a matter of perspective.

OT: he already have the 18-200, stated in the very first post  :)

Back to topic, if I were in your shoes, I'll sell the kit lens so that someone can benefit from it  ;D

if you really need the money sell it but if not just keep it then after you buy a fast lens (f2.8) then decide which to keep.  :)

Hi, sir Eugene!

After what the others have said, I guess it would be just fair to give you the other side. If you decide to defer selling your kit lens, it does make it easier for you to sell your DSLR body in the future (as opposed to selling it without the kit lens). :)

if you don't need the money right away, you can keep. Sell it in the future together with your body when you upgrade.

+1 here.
Hanggat di mo pa kailangan ng extra cash, itabi mo lang. You won't know when you will need a lighter/smaller lens like very tight places.

Sell it na sir. sell the 18-200 to me. hehehe.  ;D
Just kidding!
If you need the money, go on, sell your kit lens. but as what others said, the kit lens is very reliable for most of the times. Hmmm...why not use it for macro? You know, reverse lens...just need an adaptor and that's it!

definitely its an overlap of your wide to zoom lens and will have no use for it, might as well sell it buy a nifty fifty or other lens that will extend your creativity when taking photos  :)

I think you will get a better price if you sell your kit lens and body separately.

same dilemma here...  got the 18-200 vr(everyday lens) 2nd hand,   got 2nd hand 50 mm 1.8, kept my kitlens and bought macro lens converter.  i want also to try reverse mount it might come out better than the converter....  at least while i'm waiting to upgrade my d60(plan to get d90 next year), i can still use my kitlens for macro shots.   in the extreme case na masira yung 18-200 ko at least meron pa naman naiwan na magagamit while waiting...   this is what i did.  thanks   :)

na try ko na yung reverse mount but with my 50mm ok naman, hindi ba mahirap gamitin sa reverse mount ung 18-55 dahil maliit lang aperture nya?

i checked in this thread last night mukhang maganda yung labas ng reverse na kitlens sir.  of course i will have to try it out first.  hope it comes out good.   :)

you can actually adjust the aperture. when you reverse the lens, there is a small pin that can be adjusted by sliding it to widen the aperture.

Kit lens is very good in reverse lens macro. try it, and you'll love it.
