Hi Jason,
for a long time I, too, used a point-and-shoot small pocket Canon Ixus... until I realized that it's time to change
18-55 is not the best but better than nothing!

It depends on what you need the camera for..

in any case, I'd advise to get a lens with Image Stabilizer. It's more expensive but it helps a lot.

as far as I know, these two are among the most popular ones:
50mm (for example, http://www.the-digital-picture.com/R...ns-Review.aspx)
and 18-200mm (a universal one - for those who do not want to bother about changing the lenses every minute )...

PS. on TE there are more professional photographers than I am (I am just an amateur), so I hope you'll hear more opinions
