I think I will be selling my GM zoom and keeping the prime. Versatility of the zoom turned out not to be an advantage with my shooting style, but the weight and space savings (never mind the cost) are significant.

Thanks

Hi Dom,

excellent quick comparison and I fully understand your sentiment about size and weight - this is why I chose some primes over the comparable slow f/2.8 GM zooms as well. Zooming by feet or virtually is a viable option and most primes outpace the zooms by a hefty bit.

As alway individual mileage varies and needs may vary too.

It is good that you point out what counts most for your need not implying others will have the exact same needs - that said we seem to agree on the very same priorities
