Very nice shots. Also a great statement for fast quality primes.

Primes are great, problem is IMO that your position is fixed. The best lenses IMO are Telephoto Zooms . You have the inexpensive ones that you have to deal with that are slow and constantly changing apertures, but you have the higher scale ones $700+ that have fixes apertures that IMO can be better than primes.


Primes are excellent, but the thought of running around with 5+ lenses at $400+ or more a pop can get you a very nice Canon L zoom lens. Now this is my opinion and not fact and would like to hear other peoples thoughts on this

Yeah but you can't get 50mm at 1.4 or 35mm at 1.4 on any zoom.

If you don't need that fast though a Canon L 28-70 f/2.8 or Canon L 70-200 f/2.8 are fantastic and having used them, they probably are better than most primes that cover those ranges in terms of overall image quality, you just can't go faster than f/2.8

You will need more than one Canon L zoom to cover your range from say, 16mm to 400mm. At around $1,000 to $1,500, 3 lenses may cost you $4,000 and they are bigger, slower, and heavier than primes. Many ways to look at the equation. Most important is the end result.
