Do not exchange lenses. In fact, I would recommend that you NEVER get another lens until you know what it does and why you need it.
Answer #2 | 22/12 2013 23:33
why do you need a lens that duplicates a focal length you already have ?
Answer #3 | 22/12 2013 23:50
You already have a 50mm lens within your zoom. Why would you want another if you're not sure what it does.

Do not exchange the lens. If you want a 50mm f/1.8 then keep your 18-55 so you have 2 lenses. You have summed up the reasons for buying a 50mm f/1.8 very well in your additional details. Put your 18-55 at 55mm. As near as makes no difference that is what the world will look like through your 50mm lens. Now switch to 18mm and look - you will lose that ability if you exchange lenses. You should keep both.

The 18 to 55 is a general use lens, the 50mm f1.8 is only for portraits and bokeh effects and low light. Thus do not sell the 18 to 55, which anyway is not worth a lot of money.

It's not a replacement for the 18-55mm It's a prime lens, your 18-55mm is a zoom lens. The 50mm has no zoom. Keep you 18-55mm if you need a zoom lens. It's not worth exchanging it. The 50mm will be good for portraits with your camera - yes it will give you blurry backgrounds if you open the aperture wide.
