Smile Which is better, prime or zoom?

I personally like zoom lenses because of their versatility. Maybe I'm lazy, but that's just my opinion! I can see the value in primes too (i have a 50mm in my bag), but it just feels so restrictive sometimes. What do you guys use?

Also, random question, but for night sky photography would a prime or a zoom be better? In that context, I can see why a prime might be the way to go because of better sharpness, and it's not like you'd be zooming in and out since it's a long exposure situation. This article https://www.photographytalk.com/astr...-for-beginners seems to support that position since their recommended lenses are all primes. Just wondering if anyone has experience in that department.
