Hi Duckling,

Any camera with a 50mm (or equivalent) fast prime. This is the setup I started with 25 years ago and after trying out dozens of cameras and lenses over the years, this is the setup I will probably end up with.

Exactly. I went from a 50/f something to a lot more exotic stuff. But when I really needed to get results, the 50/f something was there and ready to perform. Specifically, a friend's wedding in a dark restaurant and a 50/f1.4. There is really not much that can beat a fast standard lens.

I did recommend the 20/f1.7 to the OP because it's a better combination of size + speed than the 25/f1.4. It's a pancake and it works fine for those times when you're not out there for photogaphy, but just enjoying the moment and sometimes it's just fun to have the camera around.
