This could have been posted on the "Lens" forum but I feel it's equally OK here.

I don't currently use a mid range zoom and prefer Nikon primes lenses. Am I alone with this or do others feel a mid range zoom better for them?

I cannot think of any zoom in existence that cannot be excelled by a prime.

ie... IQ, size, weight, speed, contrast, durability, etc.

No contest.

Can you think of any prime that can change focal lengths from a fixed location?

They all can when the subject is moving.

The relative image size may change but your focal length remains the same.  I think some macros have some creep at close distances, but a 50mm is not going to change to a 35mm when a dog runs down the street.
