Yes I know, it's an age old debate.. but it is still a debate that fascinates me. I just thought I would pose this question to the photo forum members. I myself use BOTH and think both serve different purposes. Also, IQ from primes and zooms is now pretty damn similar. So sharpness really isn't always the major advantage anymore. It's strange though, for some reason I love my primes more than I love my zooms. Why do I feel more affection to a fix focal lens over a zoom? Very strange and I am still yet to understand why. I think the main advantage of a prime lens is the sense of discipline it installs in your mind, it makes you move your feet and view life in a specific frame of mind. I feel I have to work differently when I use a prime, I feel I have to work harder to get the image. When I have a zoom, it can promote me to become lazier. But at the same time, a zoom is fantastic for fast changing situations and I find lens changes all the time a bit of pain to say the least. So everyone, what are your takes on the prime vs zoom debate?
