A&P Prime lenses... is it wrong to love them?

    I love shooting with the nifty 50. 35 1.8 arrives tomorrow. I'm sure I'll love that one even more. It's just so nice to shoot without worrying about zooming. I end up thinking more about composing the shot. I also loving shooting indoors with no flash.

    A part of me feels like I'm cheapening my D90 if I only shoot with a 35 or 50mm lens. :wtc:

    you prime users... are you only on one body. if so, are you constantly changing lenses? how do you do it conveniently?

    I love shooting my (two) primes.

    As for only having one body, I usually take only one lens with me and use it for everything. 30 1.4 if I'm going to a party or 85 1.8 when I'm at a park or something outdoors.
