Re: Prime alone, or to augment zoom?

If I took the kit lens as well, I would still opt for a fast lens. The choice of focal length might vary according to what I thought I might be shooting. The 17, 20 and 25 would all be candidates. However, as I do like to close in on details, I would lean towards the 25 f/1.8 in combination with the kit zoom.

In most European cities the choice is usually between wide or wider. I would take the 17 and then spend half my time wishing I had the 12mm. As it is I have the 4/3 11-22 and still sometimes wish for a fish eye.
