Many people would argue that the zoom lenses are handy than fix lens (prime), but except for one couple classics like zoom lens 24-70mm, most of the best lens and is preferred by power users lens now is fix. There are many reasons, but we will go over a few key points in this article to understand why fix lens remains popular and is the first choice.
1. nicer bokeh
With the lens fix, we will easily find the lens aperture of 1.4-1.8 while this is quite difficult with the zoom lens. With the structure of the lens fix, manufacturers a lot easier in the fabrication of large aperture lens with a fix. That means that to achieve with lens bokeh will fix smooth and sparkling than the zoom lens. However, bokeh depends on the structure of the lens is more than just each in large or small aperture.
2. Compact more
Most lens lens fix requires less than (somewhat counter to the current new lens Sigma type Art), compared with 1 line with each other (cheap, intermediate, advanced), the lens is more compact always fix much. This may not be very interesting if we only 1 machine and 1 lens, however 100g will also be the problem if we have 3-4 things like a backpack and wearing it all day operation.
3. Image Quality
The zoom lens has gradually narrowed the gap to fix the problem lens image quality. The quality here is said to include: Sharpness, contrast and color reproduction.

When working with fix lens, each lens fix will have one angle (angle of view) different. Once accustomed, we can imagine right out in the first scene of the image without having to freak turned it back to the ring to find out the best frame.
