Which company makes the best value prime lenses?
Jun 8, 2013

Hi. My D40 just died on me, and the kit lens is near useless now that the zoom ring is stuck between 29 and 35 mm.

I don't really have a brand preference. A lot of people suggest working with prime lenses to get really good at photography (I guess it's kind of like learning stick shift to be a better driver), so if I want to get a relatively cheap camera with a set of budget primes, which brands and lenses should I go for?

I'd rather go for a company that builds AF motors in the camera body, as I am absolutely horrible without autofocus, but getting a Nikon, Canon, or other brands that build AF motor into the lenses isn't a deal-breaker.
