Think I didn't make myself clear the first time, Sorry about that.

I mean, able to recommend both a budget series and high end series? using Canon 40D here. More of Landscape shooting for traveling trips.

For low budget ones, Sigma 10-20 or Tamron 17-50.

But now i finally reliased what's so gd abt a prime lens. It trains u as u've to use your feet to move in or out to compose your picture without using a zoom. In addition, primes have awesome sharpness.

Yup, aiming for Canon 10-20mm too. But would want a Prime lens for general purposes.

but anyway, prime dun serve general purposes, as magnification and distance will definitely alternate with each other.

for what you mentioned, as for 1.5-1.6x crop factor, i suppose a 20 to 35mm range should be suitable.

but there is a limit to how much the feet can move though within the same time frame of changing focal length. i think the merit of prime is on its weight, price and optical quality rather than for its lack of range.

In addition, primes are also able to have very large apertures when compared to zooms.

If you need the convenience of the range, then several primes to make up the range will weigh more and potentially cost more

gd pt. in fact, i have really considered to replace prime over zoom if it is more value for money, although i still searching for what i want. at the moment, i'm looking at AF-D 80-200mm f/2.8 versus AF-D 200mm f/2. if the latter is cheaper, i may go for it, but then it isn't and AF speed is slower. also looking for suitable 30-35mm primes to complement 50mm primes, trying new perspective out.
