Re: Prime as first lens for a beginner

I learned photography on a camera with prime lenses and no automatic settings, not even a built-in light meter.  My first camera with a built-in light meter was a godsend.  I can't remember when I got the first zoom.  I really doubt that zoom vs prime makes any difference to a beginner regarding learning how to use a camera.  However, they might enjoy the versatility of a zoom.
