35mm and people shots

Is Nepal mostly Buddhist? If so, you might find that the locals don't take too kindly to the 'in your face' style that a fixed 35mm lens might force you to adopt.

I agree with you! I have spent 3 weeks there in 2008, trekking, and for people shots 50-80mm is a much better focal length. Yes the fast F2 lens is an advantage, and less bulk is always welcome. But I'd definately take the X1-pro, the Zoom and a 60 or at least the 35/1,4. Plus 3-4 spare batteries, fully charged.
