Re: Thank you again

There's one more parameter here when discussing primes vs zooms: size and weight. The DA 70 will indeed outshoot any zoom, but another of it's better features is that it only sticks out an inch or so with the hood folded. And it weights just a few ounces. Perhaps not important to you now, but it might be when you take your camera gear onto an airplane, and carry same around on your shoulder for a couple weeks.

Best of luck in your selection, and show us some photos,
