If you are using the "kit lens" for your regular photography ... just ask yourself, when you review your images:

"Is this really as good as it gets?"

The answer is, of course, "No."

Your new camera really can shoot a whole lot better when you place a "decent" lens on it. You just need to get yourself (and your camera) back to a camera shop or SONY Style store and shoot through something a little better (almost anything is a whole lot better, to be honest) and then evaluate. Remember ... give the kit lens away, when you can ... to avoid trying to ever use it, again. You will thank me, later, for that suggestion.
