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?

I'm sorry, I had to laugh, the RF35 1.8 is Large and Heavy? Are you talking a few ounces and fraction of an inch compared to the new RF 50 1.8? I have the RF 35 and its stupid light! Now if you were talking about the EF 35 1.4L then yes. Its big and heavy.
