    prime lenses do not zoom. They offer super fast aperatures, are lighter weight and less expensive than a comparible zoom. What lens did you get?

    :hsugh: not really, the 50mm f/1.8 would be much clearer than a 18-55mm @ 50mm

    Damn and I thought I was the only one. Even my 16mm Zenitar MF fisheye won't zoom or focus on it's own. It's really pissing me off :mamoru:
