Advantages of a Sigma prime lens over a zoom

FaceBook LogoInteractive Facebook User Comments on Lens Review Pages

Primes are sharper. It’s nearly always simpler to build sharper glass when it's not necessary to contend with multiple elements that move. When contrasting a quality prime and a quality zoom, most often, you’ll find the prime to be sharper Quicker. High quality primes are fitted with fast maximum apertures such as f/1.2, f/1.4, f/1.8. As of now, no one has created a zoom this quick no matter the focal length. Faster apertures allow you to shoot at lower ISO (and thus lower noise) as the illumination becomes low. Or to handhold in very poor light. See a fast aperture example below. a handheld ISO 3200, 1/6 shot made possible because it was captured at f/1.4 which is wide open. The visible skylight is actually moonlight. This amount of brightness would have been impossible with a zoom using a slower aperture setting.

A Shallower depth of field. Although this becomes undesirable if you shoot landscapes or architecture, where everything needs to be in sharp focus, although for just about all other types of shooting, isolating the subject is a major key to great images. Feb 17, 2011 ✓
