The kit lens wasn't suited to the type of photography that I aspire to, so I sold it and used the proceeds to buy my first prime - a 20mm pancake. Nikon Df - kit lens 50mm prime.

Fuji X_Pro1 - kit lens 18mm prime. These days not very often, that zoom lenses can be made cheaply. The 50mm prime is not a good lens for a only lens.

But my question is won't the 18-55mm standard kit lens give me the same 50mm focal length. Nowadays a kit lens is almost always a zoom lens, but back in the day when I was buying my first film SLR, zooms were expensive and exotic and kit lenses were primes, almost always 50mm primes. I purchased a Panasonic G85 with 12-60mm kit lens from B&H last year. and do they ever put prime lens's in kits? Thanks to this, choosing between a zoom and a prime lens is now harder than ever.
