Brian Bauer says they are cheaper, have fewer lens distortions, they give you sharper and nicer looking images and â€“ best of all â€“ they make you think.
Beginning photographers should not be stuck with a lousy kit lens. The prime lenses, beloved by photographers of old, still have a place in these digital times and they really deliver on picture quality.
Brian enumerates 7 reasons why. He may have an odd way of numbering them 2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13 and 17 (they’re all primes) but theyâ€™re seven all the same. And, Brian, I agree with you wholeheartedly: prime lenses are great!
