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

There's a lot of truth in what KR writes.

Unfortunately it's buried in a lot more half-baked opinion (such as this example), which varies all over the map.

The purpose of KR's pronouncements is to attract attention, not to advise photographers. It works.

The best advise I can give is to read some other blogger. Even if you still read KR, you should always get a second (or third) opinion. Why don't you try Thom Hogan? http://bythom.com/
