Actually I agree with Ken on this one.

I never missed a mid-range zoom.

It's not that I disagree with Ken's message, it's his methodology I find irritating. I don;t see why he can't just offer advice or an opinion without all of the hyperbole.

A 50mm lens is a great investment, and to be honest I use mine more than my mid-range zoom. I think there's merit to what he's saying. But how he says it is ludicrous.

Yes but I suggest to simply forget about Ken and focus on the question the OP posted.
