Nowadays a kit lens is almost always a zoom lens, but back in the day when I was buying my first film SLR, zooms were expensive and exotic and kit lenses were primes, almost always 50mm primes. But at some point, you will outgrow your kit lens. I purposely keep my lens count minimal for a couple of reasons. Start with a kit lens not a prime. Fuji X_Pro1 - kit lens 18mm prime. The kit lens wasn't suited to the type of photography that I aspire to, so I sold it and used the proceeds to buy my first prime - a 20mm pancake. Usually though, as pointed out above, a reasonably priced prime (which may well be descended optically from older MF designs) will probably outperform the normal budget zoom. Third-party manufacturers like Sigma are stepping into the game with confidence. These days not very often, that zoom lenses can be made cheaply. It is still relatively inexpensive, but it will be quite an improvement over the kit lens in terms of sharpness. But my question is won't the 18-55mm standard kit lens give me the same 50mm focal length. Nikon Df - kit lens 50mm prime. Many photographers, when they outgrow their kit lens, purchase the 50mm prime lens as their next lens. Prime lens has only one focal length and can't be zoomed, a kit lens is what's usually included with a body, it may be a cheaper lens, but not always. and do they ever put prime lens's in kits? Is it the f1.8 that makes the prime lens a better choice? In this beginner guide, I talk about prime vs zoom lenses in detail, explaining their differences, along with some image samples. But my question is won't the 18-55mm standard kit lens give me the same 50mm focal length. The zooms built down to a price while the primes are more often built up to a quality. The 50mm prime is not a good lens for a only lens. I am a newbie but I keep seeing the 50mm f1.8 prime lens being recommend in several forum. I absolutely agree with your suggestion of having too many lenses. I purchased a Panasonic G85 with 12-60mm kit lens from B&H last year. Thanks to this, choosing between a zoom and a prime lens is now harder than ever.
