Cheers !

If you do want a genuine discussion about the topic of using fixed lenses instead of mid range zooms, then it's best to just float the idea and leave KR's name out of it.

If you don't, and especially if you put his name in your subject line, the thrad will soon enough turn into a discussion about KR.

KR has his opinions and his reasons for them. Some people who don't agree with his opinions or do not understand his reasons call him an idiot. I don't.

It may make perfect sense to use a fast prime instead of the mid range zoom or the other way around. It just depends on what YOU want to do and how YOU want to do it.
