Ken Rockwell: Don't buy a midrange zoom. Carry a fixed 50mm instead, like a pro.

Ignore this garbage post

KR was writing in 2009.  At that point only the 24-70 of today's midrange zooms was available.   It is seriously out of date.

All 4 current midrange zooms can take better pictures than you are likely to need, if stopped down.  I use all 4 of them and the 50D.  They each have their place.

If you don't have some understanding of the differing advantages of zooms and primes, an FX camera is more camera than you need.
