Re: seeking some advice regarding a purchase

Let me ask this, would an old manual focus prime f1.8 be comparable IQ-wise to a newer prime with the same focal length and aperture?

I read about people loving these good primes and figure there must be something about them that differentiates between them and a cheap 18-270 super zoom. Was thinking I could explore this difference with an affordable older lens and if I like it and want to invest in an expensive prime down the road...then I would do so.

Again, this is just some thoughts about the future. I will be very happy if the 18-135 lens will be the only lens I will ever need ... ya right!
