25mm as single-lens for OM-D?

Whatever churns your butter

Well, I just spent 3 days with a 4 lens kit and chose to only use a 25mm lens the entire time. Reason? I wanted to stay in the 50mm perspective and to 'see' what there was to see with that FL alone.

Same difference as what you're proposing. Except I had the other focal lengths on hand in case something particularly special presented itself that called for other than the 50mm FOV (insurance against shoulda-woulda-coulda). Making due with the 25mm lens alone can mean dismissing some opportunities (so it goes, w/o regret just move on to the next opportunity).

Having both a 25mm and a zoom that incorporates 25mm in its range isn't a bad idea, either. One for all the reasons one would use that prime, the other for when the the prime isn't quite the right choice (when a little wider or a little narrower FOV is the best choice).
