FPhotographer has stated really clearly that there is no difference between prime and zooms especially fa 77 ltd being no differentt from tamron 28-75mm f2.8

So save the money and buy a zoom.
I'd have to disagree on so many different counts that I won't even start, but I will mention the fact that it's two stops faster.
For me, one the main differences between primes and zooms that hasn't been mentioned yet is that the bokeh of a prime is usually much better than a zoom at the same focal length.
