    What the hell would you be shooting? Birds in Sungei Buloh?

    and actually, 300mm also cannot shoot birds. To get good shots need 600mm and above. Unless you want to crop, crop and crop loh.

    haha, not sure whats the purpose of this poll.

    I am sure the 50mm f1.8 will win highest votes cos thats the most affordable prime and possibly the only prime lens that many owns.

    Depends on the situation. 50mm for normal shooting. 85mm if subject is potentially farther away.
