As one who rarely takes long telephoto shots, I think the KP paired with the HD 35mm Limited would potentially suffice to give great image quality. The lens is close to a standard focal length, with the added bonus of close focusing. Cropping the 24 MP, to give effectively a short telephoto field-of-view, would be viable possibly down to 6 MP. For non-moving subjects, high-quality high-resolution wide-angle shots are easy to produce by stitching multiple images.

I agree .. the 35 macro is very versatile!

But I would still go for a zoom, say 16-85 or 16-50. Depends on the budget.
