18 55m do I need a 18m prime
Jul 1, 2013

Looking at picking up a new XE1 this week with the 18 15 lense, I have a chance to purchase a second hand 18m prime for about $495 NZ$ about $375 US, full retail here in NZ about $850.

What I would like to know is with the zoom would I have a need for the prime as they both are 2.8.

Would I be better putting the money towards say to the 14 or even the 60 macro.

Keen to hear thoughts from users of all these lenses.
