How often do you use the long end of that lens? If it's not often, and those indoor shots are more important than anything you'll miss above 45mm, then go for it.

If the bulk of your shots aren't in the 'normal' range though, you might reconsider and go for a wider lens instead? 20/1.7? 17/1.8?

When budget permits, pick up the tiny 14/2.5 (new ones fairly cheap on eBay) to cover the wide end

Actually, that is a good shout. I've seen a number of 14mm lenses going for around £100 on a classifieds forum I regularly use. That would give me a 14, 25, 45 set. Perhaps if I could source a second hand 25 lens I might be able to purchase both as I hope to have approx £400 to spend.

How does the 17 compare to the 25? Both seem evenly priced.
