Re: Prime as first lens for a beginner

My first camera was a Zeiss Ikon Contaflex Super with a 35mm f/2.8 lens, and my EDC camera is a Sony RX1RII with a 35mm f/2 or a Ricoh GRIII with a 28mm f/2.8, depending on the mood.

That said, unless she is a hipster or a photography student, there is no point in saddling her with a film camera, whether prime or zoom.
