Getting a single lens. Which would be more practical? 35mm or the 18-50mm zoom?

I have both. The zoom is much better than most kit zooms. But the 35 is amazing at f 1.4 and my favorite.

However, you will have to decide what is important to you - zoom range or fast aperture. People are different. You have already decided to get the tele zoom when it arrives - which to me is not a much interesting lens at all.
