You are correct, it was a poor analogy and I thought that when I wrote it. I just couldn't think of anything better. By reliably successful I meant success ratio or "kepper" ratio. I thnk you need at least two focal lenghts to have an acceptable keeper ratio for just about any particular assigment, especially if it is outdoors.

Sorry, tedolf, I was away from the internet for a couple of days. Yes, I do agree with what you expressed in your last post. In fact, I never even meant to apply my comments to an "assignment" or a given situation. For now, I am free to take pictures only when and if I see one worth taking (though I still make the error of taking many more than that). With such freedom, a single focal length has been ok. But yes, I would agree that two focal lengths (either as two primes or as ends of a zoom's range) are a minimum to adequately cover a situation.
