As the new 50mm so much lighter and smaller than the 35mm, my question is whether this compact lens is likely to be the one most often attached to the RF.

No. I honestly can’t imagine ever not taking out the RF 35 due to size or weight concerns. You will take the focal length that makes more sense. The size/weight difference is immaterial, particularly when you add in a body. Both are very small and light lenses.

I appreciate your comment that the 50mm might often prove impractical, good advice and thank you.

You’re most welcome!
