Thank you for that. My carry about as I said is the Canon 300mm f4 which is just about hand holdable!

For video I sometimes find digital zooming can work quite well Smile

Yes and also the extended tele setting which gives a 2.6x extender effect without quality loss in normal light - ff equivalent on my 140mm setting of around 700mm for spectacular perspective effects.

The minute I see a Peter O'Toole riding a camel across Richmond Park on a summers day, I'll be using it.

Quote: Are zoom lenses taking over from prime lenses

Not since going M4/3, I could never see the point in using small primes on DSLR`s that were bigger than SLR bodies.

Primes and small bodies go well together Smile

I use two zoom lenses and one prime lens. A Nikkor 16-35mm f4 VR / Nikkor 70-200mm f2.8 VR / Nikkor 105mm f2.8 VR Micro lens. The most popular lens i use is my Nikkor 70-200 f2.8 VR lens .

Nikon 24-70, a cracker of a lens. So, so good for just about everything - apart from long zooming of course.

Unfortunately those lenses cannot capture and keep a still Wink So you need to use an external one.

I've just bought a used 50mm f1.8 Nikkor
Still think it's a great addition to any outfit

I'll be using it with a set of extension tubes to see how it works but still thinking about the Tamron AF SP 90mm macro lens

Not to my Panansonic GHs, it isn't. Smile

No, I sold that. Fabulous lens but I just never used it. I reckon I have my perfect outfit now, so I'll probably flog my 20mm f1.7 too. The 12mm f2 went, too.

Getting rid of the 20 and 12mm, well I`m sure the cash could come in handy.

Going to try the lensbaby wide angle adapter on the 45mm, I have no idea what the vignetting will be like.
