Prime lenses for DSLR cameras are amazing. Sure, they don’t zoom at all. You have to physically move around to frame your shot correctly. But they do one thing really well: take beautiful pictures. Because there are no moving parts, the glass is professional quality at a fraction of the cost. Oh, and they’re tiny. Great for traveling light. Fun Fact: Every single photo in this issue was taken with this one lens (the Nikon 35mm f/1.8 prime). That means I never zoomed in ONCE! Tell that to your uncle with the $7000 telephoto.
