Usually with zoom lenses you're mostly using two focal lengths anyways, and using a prime is honestly much more fun than using a zoom. Being restricted makes you move and think about your composition. 45 is my preferred walk around lens (75 is better for discreet street photography but it's rather heavy, and I don't always feel like carrying the weight), you should definitely get this lens.
