I'm on a motorcycle rally now.

When I was selecting gear to pack my camera bag, I chose my (eq.) 24-120 lens and the bodycap fisheye.

Then I remembered all you guys who swear by primes. I've been to this very place just last year, so it's low risk. Since I left the 24-120, I put the 20/1.7 on the camera body and had room for the 15/3.5 and the slow 80-200 telephoto zoom. (Just for the camera trap)

We'll see how this "zoom by walking" business agrees with me.

With a very minor and singular exception all I shoot with is primes. And only old, manual focus film primes mounted on my a7 at that.

I hope you find the experience to your liking. It can be a creativity freeing way to shoot.

Some motorcycle prime shots of mine...
