    I guess I'd go for the 35mm as when I'm out and about my camera has a 40mm stuck on the front and the 90 is left at home or sits in a shoulder bag and is seldom attached.

    Always been happy with a 50mm for 35mm and an 80mm for 120.

    50mm. I used a 28 recently and kept cropping the images because so much of the frame had gone to waste. Admittedly this is less of an issue with 35mm, as well as being partly the photographers fault...

    I like the Nikon 45/2.8 Ai-P for a walk-around/street lens.

    In order of preference (usually) and depending on what I can carry:

    1: 35mm
    2: Short tele (80-105mm)
    3. Ultrawide (18-21mm)
    4: Longer tele (180-200mm)

    Lenses beyond those will usually depend on special needs or subjects

    It really depends what you intend to photograph. If you are planning lots of images with people or a companion in it, then a 50mm would make sense as it will not cause the sort of distortion that makes people looks slightly wierd! If your main interest is photographing the buildings and landscapes, then the 35mm would obviously be the better choice and would offer moreflexibility both for exterior and interior shots.

    35mm is the perfect focal length for me.

    When I am limited to one lens for general shooting on a 35mm camera, here are my choices in order of priority:

    35mm f/1.4
    50mm f/1.4
    40mm f/1.7
    35-85mm f/2.8
    55mm f/3.5 macro

    Minolta 40mm/2,0... It's a tiny bit wider than 50mm but not quite wide-angle while still having decently large DoF which can be useful for hyperfocal focusing. On the other hand, with f/2, it's good enough for portraits. It's the best universal lens I ever had. Not the sharpest of all, but great focal length and handling.
