Your Views on Prime vs. Zoom
Jun 5, 2014

So I started my Photography adventure with a D7100 and its 18-140mm kit lens. I went ahead and purchased the 50 f/1.8D.

Well, I'm not really paying attention anymore to the Zoom lens that I had purchased for like $600. I am so satisfied with the great job the 50mm lens does when it comes to low-light situations and image quality to begin with.

So I put on the Zoom lens, and yes, it is nice in certain situations to be able to Zoom out, but I am overwhelmingly more happy with the Prime lens.

Now, aside from the Zoom factor, what should I take in consideration about the Zoom lens in your guys' opinion
