Suffice to say it had not had a hard four years, at most perfectly average use. For regular use I think MTTF between 10 and 15 years is a better guess. In that case your kit lens would be among the approximately 25% expected to fail within the first 4 years, so only a little bit unlucky.

When we talk about the “holy trinity” of lenses, we’re talking about three lenses that work together in a group that allow photographers the flexibility to shoot in almost any situation with precision and efficiency.

Prime lenses have a wider maximum aperture than zooms, enabling you to take advantage of a shallower depth of field. Depth of Field refers to the range of focus in your image.

How many prime lenses do you need?
A basic prime lens kit should have at least three lenses: one wide-angle, one standard focal length and one telephoto. For general purpose or portrait photography, I recommend a moderately wide lens, a normal lens and a short telephoto lens, such as a 35mm, 50mm, 85mm combo.
Is 24mm good for portraits?
A 24mm lens is also great for those tight spots where you want to capture the full body of your subject and can’t use any longer focal length due to limited space. This can be common in restricted spaces, such as churches, indoor venues, and even portrait studios!
What is the first prime lens you should buy? For your first prime lens I recommend a 50mm focal length lens, which is both an economical but flexible choice. For a FULL FRAME SENSOR camera I would recommend a 50mm prime lens.
Do you need both 50mm and 85mm? Newer cameras help with this thanks to advanced eye AF, but still, it’s something you need to be aware of. If you are a portrait photographer who likes to focus more on 3/4 shots and much tighter headshots, we would absolutely recommend an 85mm prime over 50mm primes.
Should I buy both 35mm and 50mm? There is no winner between these two lenses, as they both have pros and cons. They work differently for each scenario.
