7 Prime Reasons to Love That Prime Lens

Nikon Prime Lens

Brian Bauer says they are cheaper, have fewer lens distortions, they give you sharper and nicer looking images and – best of all – 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 they’re seven all the same. And, Brian, I agree with you wholeheartedly: prime lenses are great!
