i love primes for the way they force me to think and act more than what zooms would do.

zooms are comfy, zoom in, zoom out, but do not move your body or interact with your scene. primes take me deeper into the actual process of taking the pictures (personal taste) and i have to act/move. thats the main reason. second is they give me wider apetures and bit more sharpness.

the r4 is a beast on its own, it is quite challenging camera to shoot with.

i dont think that its a matter of camera lens combo, i think its more a matter of how you like to photograph.

if you like it comfy, stick to the version 3 bodys and zooms.

Without getting into the question of zooms versus primes, let me say I bought the rIV, but not specifically for the sensor. The better VF, the better AF, the better grip, the joystick, were all reasons for me to upgrade, and I do not regret it at all. 61 mp is a plus, but I think only if you crop a lot, and where it also makes a difference in APS-C mode.
