would you travel with just a single adapted lens?

    I have always wondered if I had the resources would I buy LM lenses. Maybe although my love of getting close to things has always made that a bit less appealing. I know there are adapters for that. There are a few small lenses that I have tried that I thought I use as a solo lens. The Olympus Pen-F 38/1.8 fits the bill (as well as being something I can afford). The again, for what I spent on my 3 native lenses I could have probably picked up an M-Rokkor 40/2 and had some left over. I've always wanted to try that lens.

    Food for thought.

    I couldn't but if I did I'd probably pick up a Nikon 28mm 2.8 AIS.

    That is one sweet lens. I have the 28/2 AiS and I love it.

    If I were to travel with one lens it would be a 35mm and most likely not an old manual one as the Fuji 35/1.4 is so good. If I were to take my Pentax DSLR it would be the 35mm f/2.8 limited, the speed would be a loss but macro capability would be nice. The Pentax M 35mm f/2 and f/2.8 are very good but I'm not sure I'd travel with them as an only lens.

    If I were to travel with one adapted lens for my XT1 or X-T2, I would take my Canon 24mm/2.8 FD. 35mm effective focal length. A great looking, great walk around lens. Nice and sharp @ f4.
