Re: Testing lenses... again.

Many of the lenses on your list are more expensive than the F/11 primes. They're also for most people not general purpose lenses.

The average person is likely best off buying a 24-70mm or a 24-105mm type lens and than adding need lenses.

The main reason for some of the lenses on your list is they might be faster or lighter than a mid range zoom.

The F/11 lenses actually do something that is difficult without it.  The same way the UW zooms do. The difference being you can buy both the 600mm and 800mm likely for less than an UW zoom.
