Re: F2 Zooms

One of the benefits of the zooms is the price.

A 24,35mm,50 and 70mm collection of primes made to the same optical standard is likely going to be more expensive. That's ignoring all the other focal lengths you get.

But the problem with the OP's idea is focal range is too tight. Companies used to make similar lenses. 35-70 for example . You end up needing to either change lenses or carry two bodies. Neither option is ideal.
