Aside from the optical quality there is a real practical reason I discovered on a recent trip with the C3 and 24mm lens. Had I had a zoom I would have missed these 2 pictures taken through the front window of a bus. If I had a zoom, by the time I zoomed in they would have been gone. With the 24mm I had just enough time to lift the camera and snap. An extra second, which would have been a reflex action to zoom, and they would have been lost.
