I just came back from a trip to Europe. I decided against my gut feeling to use my 18-55 kit lens, rather than primes. I wanted versatility, as I was going to be shooting a lot of landscapes.
I am severely bummed. I never realized just how soft the bundled zooms are in comparison to primes until now.
I want the versatility that comes with a zoom, but something that's much sharper. Can anyone recommend a much sharper zoom? I'm shooting with a D7000, but if it's built for an FX body that's fine, I'll be going full frame in the next couple years anyway.
BUYING A DECENT SLR

I have been experimenting with analogue photography for the past year now. I own some simple point-and-shoot camera's (olympus trip af,..) aswell as a 120 film camera (agfa isola) but I want to be able to have some more control now on what I'm doing so it's time I'd get a decent SLR.
Since I own a canon dslr, I think it's best to go canon with the analogue also (using manual lenses on my dslr).
So there's this guy that sells a canon a-1 and av-1 along with some lenses (50MM 28MM 35-70MM 100MM 135MM 200MM). I asked how much he wanted for the a-1 + 50mm + 28mm and he said 75 euros was okay so I think this is a bargain, right?
Now I read some reviews on the a-1 but can't find any of the av-1, what's the difference?
And something that might be bad about the a-1 is that it requires a battery to be able to operate, am I right?
Any advice on what I should get // what would be a good slr + lens // any experience with a-1 or av-1?
Pic related; It's the photo that he put up with the online offer.
