Changing to primes
Nov 2, 2012

I have used zoom lenses for the past 20 years and on FF cameras like Canon 5D mkII and Nikon D800.

However I realise to get the best out of a sensor primes may be the best option.

My main problem is making the change, I am convinced that zooms give you more creativity and allow you to compose the image better.

That said I know some people would say use your feet and you will find better images my changing angles etc.

Can anyone give me their own experiences on changing to primes?

I mainly shoot landscapes but also like to do a bit of wildlife, here is a cros section on the type of photos I take. I have looked at my exif data and it show I manly shoot below 50mm but the exact focal length varies.

Canon EOS 5D Nikon D800
