I've used my 85 1.8 for a year, and it is currently the only lens I own. I plan to pick up a 35L in a few weeks, after that purchase I will have all I need. I think that using a single lens will force you to be creative and also give you an understanding of that lens. It helped me see what other focal length I needed, and not just wanted.

That is exactly what I use.
5D with 35L and 85 1.8.
Hell of a nice combo.

I go through phases where I use a specific lens 90% of the time and occasionally pop one of the others on when I really need something different. So I could see getting by with just one lens, but I don't think I would do so by choice.

Not specialising in any one thing, I love having the gear to tackle almost anything. I would be too limited with a single lens, even if it were a zoom, but I can see how it would work for some people.
