24-70 or a bag of primes?
9 months ago

I am looking at what lens i should by next. I have a 18-105 and a 70-200. I will be selling the 18-105 when i no longer need it. My dilemma is do i get a 24-70 F2.8 or a bag of fast primes that cover that zoom distance (24mm, 35mm, 50mm, 85mm). I know that the primes are more expensive and heavier overall but they are smaller, faster and imo deliver better IQ.

Which option would be better and what would be the best compromise?

Thanks
