Re: Thinking about what to get - prime to complement 12-40

Why to buy a prime within the zoom range of your 12-40?

IMHO the best prime partner for the 12-40 is sigma 60mm which is a fantastic lens. The 75mm would be even better but also $$$

I agree.

Play with your zoom for awhile first.

Its actually a very good lens. I do have a few primes together with the 12-40 but they are used in various situations where size or the need for faster lens matters.

The prime I use the most WITH my 12-40 is the oly 75. These 2 make a lovely kit. Good enough for most things I shoot.
