Prime vs Zoom
8 months ago

I have a new X-E1 with the 18-55 zoom. My question is - does a prime have any benefits over a versatile zoom, how much sharper (if at all) is a prime lens vs a zoom? I may want to buy lenses in the future but as my zoom covers a lot of the primes focal lengths, would I be wasting my money?

I know from reading these pages some are passionate about primes - convince me!
