I have been shooting with all prime lenses for as long as I can remember. Primarily, because I love the image quality of primes and secondly because I prefer using my feet to zoom in or out of the scene.
But then, my passion is to photograph people and their stories, and I did realise something was getting in my way of doing that effectively. This was most prominent during my recent trip to Bhutan where I felt the need for an ultra-wide lens at one moment, followed by a 35mm lens the next!
So I came back from Bhutan and decided to try out my first zoom lens- the 16-35mm f2.8 G-Master. I intend to use it at 28 or 35mm 70% of the time, and it gives me the flexibility to go back to 16 or 18(since I am used to the Zeiss Batis 18mm) or even 24mm.
Lets see how I like the lens in my next travel expedition- who knows I might not even enjoy it. Whatever it is, its probably the only zoom I will ever need or buy.
