prime vs zoom
Aug 15, 2008

ok, i've read quite a few threads with people stuck with primes instead of zoom lenses and i've actually had a few people suggesting me to go with primes instead of zoom lenses also (ie. EF 35mm f1.4L USM over the EF 16-35mm f2.8L II USM). so i was just wondering why? i am planning on what lenses to buy and the answer to this question may ultimately change my decision..

this might be a stupid question since i just started really looking into lenses recently after my purchase of a 40D last week.

but yes, thanks!
