    Right on. It cited some "reputable" sources though.

    Also i could refer to this page - i found it doing a quick google search right now, and he states the same as i did.

    If it really came down to it and if I'm a 1 percenter, it would be this one

    Nahh...

    This one: http://www.ebay.com/itm/ws/eBayISAPI...m=140484570702

    There's actually one for sale, brand new, in Amsterdam, for EUR 4500 (might go down to 4000). They say they'll sell it to the dlsr video crowd...

    35 as I really never liked a standard focal length on any camera, it seems a tad too long and I love the way you get amongst a group of people and they just seem to fit into the frame without too much distortion.

    I wonder if more people have voted for the 50 because more of them own a 50 that came with the camera, and have never owned a 35mm lens, which have been unfashionable for sometime.

    Had i used a d*** crop camera, i would have chosen 35mm... because it equivalent to 50mm.
    On a normal 35mm camera, i would choose 85mm over 50mm - for the bokeh! I shoot portraits mostly anyway.

    Not I - I've had both focal lengths on a variety of cameras before. I like the 50 a bit better because it does reasonable double-duty as a scenic and a portrait lens. Doing a head-and-shoulders portrait with a 35 is not quite up someone's nostrils, but definitely putting you into halitosis detection range.
