I want to buy a new super tele lens for landscape, animal photo. But I don't know which one is better? Please give your admire, bros!

Many thanks!

Get the zoom for landscapes and wildlife.

Get the prime for flowers and wildlife. The prime isn't so much faster aperture wise that it will buy you much. It is nice for closeups though, and works well enough with a 1.4x extender on any Canon DSLR.

I agree zooms are much more useful for landscapes and animals.
