Unless you shoot birds you only need one lens. For me it is 35 or 50. If you use a zoom you will never really understand perspective and composition.

A hugely restrictive viewpoint. Speaking for yourself, fine but to make a sweeping generalization considering all other aspects of subject matter available on this planet, one lens is all you need. Come on. And never really understand perspective and composition with zooms. Please explain that one?
