For those who do not give up just using prime lenses, a solution is always put three cameras on her neck. ??? ::) Thus, you can use your holy trinity of primes and not lose photos for having the wrong lens for that moment. :o Hopefully shooters birds do not follow my advice. ;D ;D ;D


+ 100 for me too, Dear Teacher Mr. ajfotofilmagem
I am original from Thailand, and was reserved in Thai Army, In the Platoon, We have many kinds and type of Guns/ Equipments  for difference Functions of each  member in the Platoon. Same thing as in Our Love Hobby ( some of our CR. members are the PRO )---Difference Cameras and Difference Lenses for Difference functions or type of Situation/ Kinds of Photography that we want to create for the best of our ability---Yes, If Lucky, We can walk in the woods with 50 mm Lens and shoot the Eagle, But If we have 200-400 + 1.4X in our hand, We will get the best chance to get the Masterpiece too---Not have to wait 6-12 hours in the Camouflage tent on the top of tree near the eagle's net with 50 mm. or 85 mm  F/ 1.2 L--Great Prime Lens.
And take the risk to fall down from the tree, because we are sleepy.
Nice to talk to you, Sir.

Yes If Robert Capa had zoom lenses in its time, would not have risked so much to get photos like this:


True but Zooms don't go over embankments.

(if you all ever are in Saigon/Ho Chi Minh city, visit the war museum. Most of it is propaganda but they have a great photo exhibition with the last roll of Capa and the full story of his death by witnesses. He went off the road to see what was beyong a bank. Minefield.)

I go back to listening Taro by Alt J  :(

Addendum: but if he had digital, we wouldn't miss 95 pictures of DDay :(

Capa didn't risk anything taking that image, it has been proven to be staged. Having said that, he did end up losing his life in combat, and the mine he stepped on didn't give a damn if he had a zoom or a prime.

To suggest, even in jest, that combat photographers don't risk as much as Capa, because the vast majority of them shoot zooms, is a disgusting thought.
Too often we lose sight of the fact that photography is about capturing light, if we have the ability to take control of that light then we grow exponentially as photographers. More often than not the image is not about lens speed, sensor size, DR, MP's or AF, it is about the light.
