I used the SEL50 almost exclusively for weeks at a time until I bought the Zeiss 24. The SEL50 can be used, but it does have limitations that you seem to recognize. There are times when backing up is not much of an option (e.g., around a house, perhaps). But 95% of the time with the SEL50 I was able to compose the shots I wanted.

I haven't used my kit lens since March. I am not sure why I am keeping it. I can do 99% of my shots with the Zeiss 24 and SEL50. I suspect a lot of people would be just fine with the 2 Sigma lenses (19 and 30) and the SEL50. But I don't mean to speak for anyone else because we all have varied motivations for the shots we take and enjoy.
