I just did some quick math based on B&H's current prices (some of the lenses are on sale right now) and this is what I came up with. Primes P14, O17, PL25, O45, and O75 total about $2491. Zooms P12-35 and P35-100 total about $2535. The zooms get you wider and longer, add image stabilization (which may not be important to you depending on which body you use) and mean you need to carry fewer lenses and change lenses less often. The primes mean that you have extra speed. Of course, if you substitute the 012 for the P14 you get wider, but spend several hundred more. So, which kit would you guys prefer?
