As prime lenses have a fixed focal length, it means that they are less complex than a zoom lens. This means that they have less optical aberrations, leading to a cleaner and sharper image.

They also provide better portability than a zoom lens. All of our Canon prime lenses encourage superb prime lens photography by being smaller, more portable and easier to carry.
