"This latest addition to the class of pro-grade, weather-sealed, f/2.8 constant-aperture telezooms wowed us in our March 2013 lab test. With excellent sharpness, low distortion, and Vibration Compensation that gave us an edge of 3.5 stops on average, it was a winner. And at a price of $1,499, this full-frame optic comes in $900–$1,000 less than the equivalent Canon or Nikon zooms. Also available in Sony Alpha mount, with no VC—most Alpha DSLRs have sensor-shift IS."
A prime lens is one that has a fixed focal length whereas a zoom lens has a variable focal length. Zoom lenses are popular for the flexibility they afford in different shooting situations, but a prime lens is sometimes the better option. For example, prime lenses almost always have a faster f-stop and this allows them to perform better in low light. Low light situations are one of the most challenging for photographers to work in, so having a prime lens at hand can save the day. Prime lenses are also useful when there are several light sources in the shooting area, such as different lighting fixtures in a dark room. Prime lenses also afford a shallower depth of field and are easier to handle due to their smaller size and weight. Such lenses can require a bit of flexibility without a zoom function but the end results are well worth it, especially in demanding low light situations. Check out Camera Land's lens selection here!
