    One lens for overall coverage and an another lens for detailed/close up coverage. 28/35 or 85/135 will do great job for you.

    and what's the photographic value of a dinner table?

    i was talking about switching angles, not being stuck with one specific angle

    Surprisingly it's still one of my favourites.

    Apologies, I forgot the identifying quote.

    As has already been said 50mm only and you can then concentrate on control of perspective and composition.

    For me, going out with just one lens works really well when I know where I am going and have my mind set on that particular focal length. Even better if I know what I will be looking for. However, if I am traveling to a new place I don't know much/enough about, I take at least three lenses with me, usually more. Once I am familiar with the place and know what to expect, it's easy to pick one lens (or two, or three) and not miss others. So... more or less standard answer - two in the 20-35 range, a 50ish, and something longer (85-200). Two bodies sounds good too, especially if there is a serious risk of someone important asking to hold the camera for more than 5 seconds.

    A question for the puritans...are we allowed to use color film?
