Re: 16-35mm vs prime?

A lot of people run through these zooms and end up with the primes eventually, as they're typically lighter, better, and force you to be creative rather than sitting and zooming.

That's what I did. I'm very wary of zooms now, as I found that I've sold every one eventually.

I always prefer IS, btw, when I can get it. Exception I allow is the 135mm f/2 because it's just that good.

Nice kit that covers most of the bases (and for the rest you can stitch in post):

35mm f/2 IS.

24mm f/2.8 IS

40mm f/2.8 pancake (great lens!)

85mm f/1.4L IS

135mm f/2

300mm f/4 IS

And then there are the super teles.
