prime lens better than 'superb' zoom lens like f2.8?
Dec 19, 2011

I love my 24-70mm and 70-200mm f2.8 zoom lens, but I realized that my prime lens, Zeiss have better IQ than my zoom lens. I'm not one of anti-zoom crowd but I'm amazed by the fact that the 'good' prime lens beat out 'superb' zoom lens when it comes to image quality! Is this 'normal' for any prime lens?
