    I've been doing most of photography with my Zuiko 35-105mm zoom with close focus. It's not humongous, and it covers a very nice range of focal lengths for me. Soooo, I guess my answer would be "yes".

    I'd go with 35mm unless I was expecting to photograph a lot of people then I would chose the 50. If you are taking a lot of images in low light a 50mm may be better since they usually faster.

    Geeez, not only must I agree to carry only one lens, but it has to be one of two that you pick? Thanks, but I pass. If I have to travel so light that I cannot have but one lens, then I would choose between one of these two cameras:

    1) Hasselblad XPan with 45mm lens.

    2) Contax TVS III with Zeiss 30-60mm zoom.

    The fact is, the Contax is so compact and has so much capability that I usually have it with me no matter what else I am carrying.
