Re: Why?

I have a Tamron 24-70 f2.8 VC.  However, I am a sucker for wide apertures, so even f2.8 seems not wide enough.

I enjoy the 50mm f1.4 and the 85mm f1.8 and even the 35mm f2 much better than the 24-70mm.

It's all a matter of preference.

I am really interested in why you use prime lenses and don't use a mid-range zoom. I take a mid-range Nikkor zoom to be the 24-70 so you must be using prime lenses in this range?

I am not trying to be a snot. I just want to know.
