Re: 2470 G Master has confused my lens choices

I have shot plays, publicity shots, stage work, etc for 7 years, and zooms work really well for that.

Now i'm doing art shots as i'm a member of a pretty good gallery, and i'm using all primes, pretty much.

Wildlife - never have done it too seriously.  I do remember an occasion where i had a DA-300 prime, Pentax, shooting some bald eagles.  And one came swooping down close overhead and the 300 prime was useless for that.  Shooting orca whales, with the 300 prime again and one came in and dove right underneath the boat and up the other side.  300 useless for that again.  Long prime teles, IMO only, lack a practicality when shooting wildlife or drama.
