I have ordered the new RF 50mm but wonder if I really can manage without the large and rather heavy 35mm lens? I have the 24 - 105 for general purposes (non professional), and as a carry around combination the RP plus 50mm seems sufficient. Am I wrong?

Canon RF is one of the lightest modern FF 35mm f1.8 even with stabilisation and close focus ability. It seems to be great lens (with exception of AF, really shame on new mount)

Not directly comparable with 50mm due to obvious focal length difference. 50mm is easy to design in small size.
