    If it's a good 20 that's not distortion but exaggerated perspective.

    24mm for me. If I had to choose from the two though it would be 35mm.

    The same as onepuff, above, out of that choice it would be the 35mm but my own choice is the 24mm.

    If only one lens, 35mm. If two, I like 28mm and 50mm.

    35mm: Enough to show the detail of cityscapes and partly landscapes.

    85mm: Great for portraits. I shot raising thunder clouds with this one, it was great(kind of nature portrait).

    I wish 24mm zuiko, gets cheaper.

    Very specials are 100 and 135mm.
    OM-1n: Do I need to own a Leica?
    Rolleicord Va: Humble.
    Holga 120GFN: Amazingly simple yet it produces outstanding negatives to print.

    Depends on what your preferred themes are. You might go with the more universal 35mm any day but I would prefer 85mm. With both you might shoot almost all daily street scenes, even the 50mm is a great classic prime you will cherish right only if you have focal lengths around it.

    It depends the quality of your lens. If it was Leica , I vote for 50 , if it is japanese , I vote for 24.

    Another vote for 24mm. For many years I didn't even own a 50 - the 24 was my "normal" lens!

    My favourite walk about street shooting lens is a Canon FD 35mm f2. with the focus set at around 10ft at round about f8 using the hyperfocal distance there's little o need to focus for grab shots.
