Re: What makes more sense?

Hi Keith, thanks for the input.

I am aware of the fact these two are completely different lenses.

I was thinking what might be better a start up combination. I am tempted by the zoom lens but it seems the people use prime more often.

You are trying to decide between two totally different lenses. You already have a 50 mm capability with your current zoom which is capable of getting good close-ups & portraits but which may be slightly limited when shooting in low light. Some will stress the importance of shallow DOF which F 1.8 allows but this lens is also slightly soft with CA wide open so it is not all win-win.

If you travel & shoot buildings as well as landscapes then, IMHO, the longer zoom may well prove to be more versatile but don't be biased in your choice merely because the two lenses are in a similar price range
