Hi Duckling,

Any camera with a 50mm (or equivalent) fast prime. This is the setup I started with 25 years ago and after trying out dozens of cameras and lenses over the years, this is the setup I will probably end up with.

Exactly. I went from a 50/f something to a lot more exotic stuff. But when I really needed to get results, the 50/f something was there and ready to perform. Specifically, a friend's wedding in a dark restaurant and a 50/f1.4. There is really not much that can beat a fast standard lens.

I did recommend the 20/f1.7 to the OP because it's a better combination of size + speed than the 25/f1.4. It's a pancake and it works fine for those times when you're not out there for photogaphy, but just enjoying the moment and sometimes it's just fun to have the camera around.

Peter.
