Interesting article about favouring a 50mm prime lens over short 'standard' zooms. I've wondered about doing this for a while -- DSLR resolutions are high enough that a little post-production crop will barely be noticed, and the depth-of-field advantages of fast lenses are joyous.
I think my plan would be a 10-20 extreme wide zoom (probably Sigma's, though the handling on low-end Nikons is less than ideal in my hands), a fast 30 or 50, and later a longish zoom or (maybe maybe) macro.
Ah, it's nice to dream.
