It's said with primes that you zoom with your feet. That can be problemating when rock climbing. I was too lazy to carry my 18-200mm VR. Pretty darned lazy.

My friend sees me teetering over the edge. "Hold on, I have to back up to get that climber in the background!"

We used up the day's remaining light to go on a short hike afterwards.

Nothing special, but it was fun to not be able to zoom, nor zoom with my feet, to work with what I got.

Very nice! I like foot zooming - it makes you think more when composing. This is why I have sold all my zoom lenses and shoot with (MF) primes only.
I do have a cheap kit lens (18-70) that I got for the occasional no-brainer walk about (has not happened yet though... :smile: ).
