    I definitely would go for the 35mm. That was the first additional lens I got for my Pentax KX SLR back in 1977!

    I have far too many lenses but the focal length I use at least 80% is the 50, on film.

    35mm by focal length, but I do seem to shoot 35mm a lot in low light. The fastest 35mm for my Pentax cameras that I'm aware of is f/2 and it's spendy. If I could get a 35 1.4 like you Nikon folks....but then again I imagine those aren't cheap either.

    Definitely 50mm!

    My Pentax-A 50mm f/2 manual focus is the one lens I use the most, second my Pentax DA-35 f/2.4 (which works just perfect with 35mm film houses without any vignetting etc.).

    35mm, my favourite being the f2.5 Color-Skopar for my Bessas.
    A bit slow, but sharp as a tack.

    50mm only through choice.

    I got back from South East Asian and was shooting Angkor Wat with my Canon f1N and my 35mm FD lens. I also brought my 50mm, but the perspective was too tight for me. Somehow, the perspective of a 35mm lens feels natural to me.

    The only 35mm camera I shoot anymore is my Stereo Realist. It has a pair of 35mm lenses. Nice!
