    We are going to Great-Brittain (Basingstoke area) for 4 days.
    What lens should I take with me. I always take only 1 lens with me
    My camera is the Sony A7II

    - Small pancake C/Y Tessar 45mm f2.8 : small , sharp but only 2.8f
    - Summicron-R 35mm f2.0 : Leica, but rather big
    - Summicron-R 50mm f2.0 : leica, small but a bit narrow maybe
    - C/Y Zeiss Distagon 35mm f2.8 : small , but only 2.8
    - 35-70 f3.4 zoom Minolta MD (Leica Vario Elmar). Flexible but only f3.4

    Any suggestions :)

    Summicron-R 35mm f2.0 : Leica
    Why, because it's wide enough, fast enough for low light and interiors, good for street shots, landscapes.
    Who cares if it's bigger, you only have one lens based on your personal constraint.
    Always better to have a wide-normal than pinched with too much focal length.
    (smuggle the Minolta zoom into the luggage....we won't tell the Wife. ) :D
