I agree about one focal length being boring.

I see a scene to be framed and stand where it works, then zoom until the framing for that scene is right.

Perspective is where the camera is, focal length makes the frame. Stick with a single 35mm or 50mm lens and you lose that flexibility to get the image looking at its best.

I violently agree with all of the above.

In my case lenses from 7.5mm fisheye and for rectilinear 8mm with zooms up to 300mm with M4/3 and I use most of the range a lot of the time. I would go nuts if I was stuck with a prime.

Me too.
