I respectfully enjoy using both Nikon Prime and Nikon Zoom lenses. Primes are expensive, heavy but precise. Zooms are cheaper in cost, lighter in weight plus have an expandable range to shoot wide to telephoto but with a very slight image quality loss. An even mix of lenses will cover all types of jobs. I own several lenses, and have found I like Nikon's lens construction and weight of their lenses to be the best. I have owned Canon cameras and lens in the past. The article is interesting and informative. Remember to add a converter 1.4x to increase your range. I found adding a 2x is too many f- stops lost and some Nikon lenses recommend not to use the 2x converter. One other bit of information most large telephoto lenses should be mounted on a strudy tripod but zooms can be hand-held, very helpful when one is on a tree limb shooting...
