I have been reviewing my images and have noticed i take a lot more time on my compostions when I shoot primes. I guess i get a bit lazy with zooms. Coupled with most of the primes are a bit sharper, I am considering using a prime kit

Prime lenses in the stable: rok 8, 14, 23/2, 27, 35/1.4, 56, nikon 105/4 macro

a part of me thinks the F2s would be good 23, 35, 50, 90 for the sharpness and weathersealing and size.

idealily the kit would fit in my hadley small pro bag with my xpro2

this would be for more serious trips where weather could be rainy.

i also have my x100f with the tcl and wcl for business trips and really light kit.

thughts/suggestions.

I think the notion that primes force you to slow down and focus on composition is hogwash.

It is.   Because it's tripods that make one slow down and concentrate.   The difference between primes and zooms is how one sees and engages with potential subjects/scenes.
