sweet, first to vote against primes. they have their advantages sure. i have a couple, but i'll take a zoom. Sure they are small, and light(until you get a few of them), but barring the long teles they are at the very least matched, usually beaten in IQ by zooms(the L variety). for all of you out there with zooms that want to be liberated, i can come over to your house free of charge and epoxy your zoom lens in your preferred focal length.(provided it's within your zoom's focal length range) I'll even do weird custom stuff like 80mm, 140mm, or even 103mm, whatever you need. Don't get me wrong. I'm not saying zooming all over the place is a replacement for moving closer or further away from your subject. All the distances and angles play a large role in the final results.
really though, obviously sure they work great for a great many photographers, I'm just not that guy.
