This is why getting a blanket lens recommendation almost never works. Everybody has a different set of priorities on what and how they want to shoot and how much they have to spend.
Getting a 35/1.8 and a telephoto could work really well for you. It also might not. Whether or not you "need" the kit zoom depends.
The main thing to keep in mind is that a body-only package isn't meant for a beginner to choose lenses a la carte. It's meant for the more experienced/equipped shooter not to get lumbered with yet another 18-55 kit lens when they buy a new body. :)
Each lens is a specific tool, and just as carpenters, plumbers, and electricians all have tool boxes, but fill them with different tools, what you shoot as a photographer will pretty much determine what your lenses will be.
Just me, but I'd say if you're buying new, get a kit that comes with an 18-55 instead of just the body. It'll only cost $100 more (it's a rare lens that costs so little), and you'll have the wide end covered for landscape/environment shooting, as well as fast normal and telephoto. And you'll have the "training wheels triple", to form a basis for all future lens purchases. You'll also be liable to replace all three of those lenses as you advance and discover more specific needs, but they're a good starter kit, and together probably cost about the same as one good midgrade lens.
If you think $100 is terribly expensive for any kind of lens, then you may want to rethink the dSLR purchasing decision altogether, because camera companies think that $300 or under is a cheapie lens, $600 is mid-range, and $1000+ is "expensive". I tend to tell folks that the cost of a camera+18-55 kit is probably only about half to a third of what you should plan to spend on a basic setup. Think more US$1500 than US$500 to go dSLR.
Does this mean you need a kit lens? Maybe not. We can't tell you if you need the kit or not. We don't know what/how you plan to shoot. But if you can't figure it out with simple research, then experience may be your only possible guide, and you can't experience a kit lens without owning one.
