I consider the 80 f/1.9 to be more of a desirable accessory than the best choice for an all purpose, standard lens.

Just as I do the 80mm f/4 macro lens, which happens to be the 80mm lens I own.

But that is at least part due to the fact that the 80mm f/2.8 (or the 110mm f/2.8 that I use in its place) share the same small size, filter size and compatibility with the focus assist lever that the 55mm f/2.8, 150mm f/3.5 and 210 mm f/4 lenses do.

Which just goes to show that the lens choice is wide enough to serve the needs of many different people.
