p.4 #2 · Frustrated... Primes vs zooms


as i said before, i am using primes not only because they are sharper and because of the shallow DOF.
i have primes because i really enjoy using them, in 80-90% of the time...and this is the most important thing for me.

i cant think these days about using zooms like 24-105...not because its not as sharp as my 35L - because i think i wont enjoy using it. thats it.

Yes, it is .5% More Powerful, but the other options were within fractions of a percentage of being as powerful, all of the options were more than powerful enough, and getting the Most Powerful Among The Powerful had a very real cost in terms of other important considerations.

With lenses, getting the Very, Very Sharpest Lens at a cost flexibility, size, bulk, ability to fit filters, usage issues, and more does not always make sense, and it usually won't make a difference in the perceived sharpness of the resulting photographs. There are some cases in which it can make sense, but

Very nicely put.

Keep the zooms add a 35 F2 or 40 2.8 or 50 1.8 as needed.

IMO, you need a 2.8 zoom from the start.... sounds like you got an L for the sake of getting an L... look into the 17-50 variant. I borrowed the 24-105 for a couple of weeks while I shot crop.... certainly didnt know what the fuss with that lens was about, much happier shooting a tamron 17-50.
