The transition from a standard 1100m lens to the 65mm is practical, my equivalent would be from a 150mm on my 5x4's to a 90mm.

A 65mm would give you quite a reasonable wide angle lens, that's easy to use under a wide variety of conditions, when you go wider the lenses aren't always suitable, too wide in some circumstances. This is why many would have the equivalents of both the 65mm & the 50mm, so I have a 65mm for my 5x4 but it gets much less use than the 90mm.
