I had a quick search around and did not come up with much good info. Basically I wanted to guage opinion on what was best lens choice for my 16mm camera.
I can buy a Carl Zeiss TRIOTAR 4/135 zoom for around $200, or I can buy 2 lenses, Carl Zeiss Jena Flektogon 12.5mm and 25mm for around the same money.
From my reading, primes appear to be the choice for quality and image, and while zooms are catching up, they are best for flexibilty. Although I am leaning towards 2 primes instead of the zoom, I have a suspicion that still photographers can easily view the differences between lenses, however, will an old 16mm camera, shooting old stock be the best way of seeing the differences between prime and zoom lenses? Am I wasting money on good glass when perhaps I would not not notice it, and would I benefit more from a moderately priced modern zoom?
Perhaps I can be educated with some links?
