Prime vs Zoom
Jan 31, 2014

Now that i decided to go for the Fuji X-E2 i wonder if i should pick the 35mm prime or the kit lens 18-55mm.

I've always been shooting in scene mode with DSLR's but now wanting to learn the basics of photography (aperture, iso, shutter speed etc)

Can somebody explain why some people advise to start with a prime lens instead of a zoom when your photograpy knowledge is minimal ?
