Re: Zoom or no Zoom that is the question.

I'm replacing my Sigma 24-35 F2 lens. Started off eyeing the Sony 16-36 F2.8 GM but starting to thing that zoom covering the wide range of focal length is not as important as before.

Since Zoom lens sharpness are different in each focal point in the Zoom, the IQ wouldn't be as consistent. so what is the point of buying that expensive zoom? I might as well buy a wide prime with consistence IQ and if not wide enough I'll just do pano's plus its lighter and less expensive. Plus, you can crop in post for that tighter shots.

What do you guys think?

Secondly, I've haven't seen any dxomark rating on the Batis 18/2.8 but heard that B 25/2 is a great lens. Which one would you guys choose and what others out there are good?
