    I've got 24mm, 28mm, 35mm, 50mm Nikkor lenses and FM, FE, and FM2N bodies to mount them on. Can't say I've got a favourite, will frequently go out for the day with one lens and one body but don't think too hard about which to take. I just find the pictures that work with the lens (or not, but then it's me rather than the wrong focal length that's usually to blame!).

    When I was fast on my feet 35mm was ideal but now that I move slower I strictly use a 50mm, sometimes with my old 6-inch Ries. A bit of a pain but when you need a tripod you need a TRIPOD, right?

    I almost always use a tripod.

    I have a 17-40 zoom on my camera about 60% of the time, and a 70-200 30% of them time. I rarely use and of the lenses I have in the 40-70 range

    One camera carries a 43mm (PKA), and the other carries a 100mm (M42). That's walkabouts.

    And sometimes I'll slap on a fast 50mm or a 35mm.

    For street shooting with Leicas: 35mm f2 Summicron
    For shooting dance performances: 90mm f2 Summicron

    For portraits with Nikons: 105mm f1.8 Nikkor
    For walking around with Nikons: 28-105mm Nikkor zoom

    I won't go into other formats...

    For people shots (quick on the go candid portraits) I use a 50mm. For all around shooting and multiple people shots I use a 35mm. I tend to stay away from using a 35mm when there is only one person in the frame mostly because the slight wide angle distortion is noticeable, especially in head shots.

    I have owned cameras for thirty eight years, and did not own a fifty milleter lens until a month or so ago.

    So, how do you like the 50mm?

    I have 4 Nikon bodies. One has a 85mm permanently mounted, another has a 35mm permanently mounted and the third & fourth bodies may have any of 7 other leneses mounted depending on the situation.
