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

This made me think about a recent story here on dpreview about a Russian mother taking photos on the farm...what was most interesting to me was the number of the shots taken with a full frame 135/f2.8 lens which seems to be her go-to lens. That story encouraged me to get more creative with my 75/f1.8 (fairly close equivalent). Sometimes imposing a focal length constraint can really force some extra creativity and thought into composition that a zoom would have me waste due to laziness. The 75 is a very special lens imo.

This was the story and her flickr site in case you want to see some of the shots:
