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 not sure I follow. The RF 35 is neither large, heavy or expensive. Perhaps you have it confused with the EF 35 f1.4L II with adapter?

24-105 + 50mm prime would be sufficient for a lot of people. Only you can decide of course. If you want only one prime, you can't go wrong with either 35 or 50. Personally 50mm is my favorite focal length, despite the fact that it's often not wide enough.
