Re: Backpacking/world travel 45mm or 75mm?

I would take the 45 1.8, but I would leave your heavy lens home and find a 12-32 (from the GM1) for the wide to mid range and then either a 20 1.7 or 17 1.8 for low light.  I have found that most travel shots are done in the wide to mid range...and the 45 is actually a short telephoto. That combination would give you the optimum weight consideration.  Your back would probably thank you.
