25mm as single-lens for OM-D?

I doubt I'd be happy w just one prime.

OK, for my morning walk I may take a single lens, sometimes a prime, to force me to look at things differently. But I'm walking the same rout daily, so if I see something that particular lens doesn't work for I can come back the next day w a different lens.

Again, walking through town at night, a single lens may work, but if I take two, I will use both before the end of the night.

Now on a longer hike, or a trip to someplace I'm not likely to visit frequently, if ever again, I'm going to want to cover the full range... For a hike that would mean wide, tele and macro. For a museum or cathedral it might mean ultra wide and a fast prime or two

But that's just me... some people 'see' in a single focal length or limited range, while I tend to be all over the place.

In 4/3 the 12-60 was my primary lens, but in m43 I don't really have a favorite.  I'll pick up a lens as the mood strikes me, or for what I'm expecting to shoot that day.  For primes I have two- the 45/1.8 and 14/2.5  Eventually will pick up the 17/1.8 which will be a better walk around lens for me than the 14.  For some reason, I don't find 25mm a particularly exciting FL...  maybe too 'normal' for my taste?
