Every time I buy a new lens for my camera, I tell myself it’s the last item I need. The set is complete at last! I am prepared for every photographic eventuality!
And then I find out I’m completely wrong and there’s something else I need to add to my kit.
I’ve been happy with my set-up for a long time now: my lovely Olympus OM-D with three prime lenses. I love prime lenses. You could even call me a prime lens snob (I certainly do) and I wouldn’t mind a bit. I love those little lenses. I love their great quality. I love the fact that I can’t zoom at all and if I want to get closer to, or further away from, my subject, I need to use my legs.
But recently I wondered if I should invest in a general-use zoom lens that I could take on all those roadtrips I plan on doing this year.
