Hi, used to have only a 24mm, 50mm, and 85mm. why would it bother me? =)
It's fun and makes you think of how you want to take the pic, and also train you to walk up and down. haha.
Nope never missed a shot.
Sure there's some of us here who do that. I recall another thread if you feel like looking for it. Yes, I've missed a few shots here and there, but not any more than using the wrong zoom would cause. Plus I feel the higher quality of primes over zooms (at least those zooms that don't cost 4 figures) made up for a lot for that.
I don't think it really matters what you use, so much as how familiar you are with the limitations of what you're using, and how different settings will affect the image. Plus what is required in the composition to make a picture look good at different focal lengths.
I have always used both... But recently, I decided to invest in a couple of 4-figure zooms and do away with all my primes. If you get a very good zoom, the results are similar... and you don't have to keep a set of different diameter filters.
Of course, if you deal will zooms, you will have to deal with more zoom problems like vignetting, light fall-off, barrel distortion, etc... but the added zoom range increases the scope of creativity in most situations.
