Re: Primes instead of zoom lens

I started with a zoom and a prime 50mm. i find for everyday use a zoom is the most versatile, BUT the zoom you picked is not as good as the 15-85 or the 17-55. The 60 mm Macro is a good portrait and Macro choice for your camera.

Now I have more lenses but when I shoot sports/kids it's a 70-200 zoom and everything else is a "normal" zoom as I mentioned. The 17-55 gets used at birthday parties and indoors but the 15-85 gets used outdoors and for traveling the wide 15 is just the best. The 18-200 is OK and you will probably find it great to learn on.
