I kind of learned to shoot with a zoom + prime kit in the DSLRs. I swapped between using the 24mm or the 50mm primes and 18-200 super zoom on DX bodies. So that was a kit of 35mm, 75mm and 28-300mm equivalent. I had the 35mm DX, but for some reason I hardly used it. Maybe because I didn’t really have it until a bit later on, the other primes I had were D versions and were all 2nd hand purchases. All of these lenses are sold now as I switched systems. I've been shooting with just the 14 and 25 for a short while since getting the E-M5. I love the experience of changing between 2 lenses. It just feels right. I don't really bring a bag, just pocket the lenses if it's cold and I'm wearing a jacket. Sometimes I would add the 9-18. When I travel I bring my full kit in a bag. I have since added the 45. As a matter of fact, this is my 2nd time with the 45. It's really nice, but I decided to sell it the 1st time to fund the 25. I don't regret it, and playing with f/1.4 is a lot of fun. Though now I have an equivalent kit of 28, 50, and 90. I don't particularly like having 1 lens mounted and then having both of my pockets occupied with another lens. I would sometimes forget which lens is in which pocket, etc. It feels annoying. I'm thinking whether or not I will be able to replace the 14 and 25 with the upcoming Olympus 17 f/1.8. I'll be able to have a 2-lens kit again consisting of the 17 and the 45. The 35mm equivalent would be really versatile and I love shooting with that focal length. 45 is kind of a medium telephoto and it's still workable indoors. I understand that I would lose out on having the f/1.4 aperture. But the kit size would be smaller and more importantly the 25 is just ever so slightly heavier. Please understand that I won't be selling any of my existing lenses. This is not one of those "oh I have to sell this lens to fund this other lens thread". I'm merely considering adding the 17/1.8 when it's released and then choose kits as I see fit for different days. However I do suspect that I will be carrying the 17 and 45 on most days. What are your feelings on kit selection on outings? Any rangefinder users who would like to chime in?
