    I'm liking the voigtlander 40mm f/2 slII lens. A little wider and more versatile than the 50; a feature that's handy for digital (crop sensor) and film. Pretty rugged lens with a pleasing image. I really don't use wider than that on film...

    step 1: acquire lens

    I usually go with either 24 or 100 macro.

    I'll cast my lot for a 24mm as well.

    While granting the subjectivity of the whole matter, I find that the 24mm field of view is when things really start to feel wide. I've shot a fair amount with 35mm lenses and to me, it feels like a bit too compromised. It's often too wide to really zero in on a subject easily (35mm rangefinder lenses don't focus very close and even on an SLR, it takes time to really get into something's face) but not wide enough to really feel expansive. I find uses for it, but not if I want to really work with a wide FOV.

    I also own the Voigtländer 40mm f2 Ultron SLII but I don't really think of it as a wide lens. Think it's more to me what 35mm is to a lot of people.

    My basic kit is 3 lenses:
    21mm (or similar), 35mm and 90mm (or similar).

    Does a lot of things very well...

    Don't miss 50mm (I even have some collecting dust).

    My favorite prime is my 35mm MC Rokkor f/1.8. It sees more use than the 50mm f/1.7. Both are very sharp but the 35 wins the day.

    I love a nice 35mm angle of view for full frame, but I often print 4:5, so I opt for the 28mm, which gives a similar feel to the print as the 35mm lens when cropped to a 4:5 ratio.

    I've never owned a 28mm. My 18mm and 24mm get the most work on the wide end, the 35mm and 50mm get the least. My "normal" lens is the 105mm.

    I think you should get the 24mm

    I have a 21 and a 50 that I often take when traveling, and i think it may be too big of a spread.
