I'm getting my first good camera (Fujifilm X-T10) and I'm on a bit of a budget. I was wondering whether people recommend I get and XC 16-50mm F3.5-5.6 zoom lens, or a prime lens with a larger aperture range for a similar price?
Thank you very much for all your help!
As @Ubrales implied, what you take pictures of determines what kind of lens you want. Do you need to take low light pictures without flash? Then a single length lens with a larger aperture is better. Do you want to do sports photography? Again, larger aperture is better because you can trade shutter speed for f-Stops.
Since that body has a APS-C sensor, a 50mm full frame equivalent would be around 35mm focal length. A 50mm lens on that body would be a portrait lens.
