    The only thing normal about me is the lens on my camera.

    Every situation requires for me a different answer, Not only with lense choice but camera style and even film choice so this is tough to answer.

    i voted for the "normal" lens category as most of the large format sites on the web categorize the 210mm as a "long normal" lens. Another great thing about large format is that I can use my so-called normal lens as a short portrait lens and a 1+:1 macro lens

    I love 28mm and can't seem to get away from it (in 35mm photography).

    Interesting results, most here prefer wide-angle, yet the mass consumer audience has been force-fed tele lengths for many years (try to to find a decent wideangle on ANY consumer digicam -- you won't!).

    Generally speaking I'd be happy with a moderate wide angle for most of my work, the equivalent to a 35mm lens for 35mm film format.

    OTOH, I wouldn't want to be confined to that focal length. Each session determines what I use.

    I find it varies a lot, but I am put in mind of what a local photographer once said when I asked what sort of gear did he use, "whatever is appropriate for the shot", or something like that.
