It's more pronounced in wide angles, but you have it with a 50 mm also.
The most natural to human perception is the 90 mm, while the 35 mm 
agrees appr. to the central angle (though you realize - mainly -  movements 
also on larger degrees = more outside). It's different when you concentrate
on a subject, then the (attention) angle is far more reduced to a little
more than 10 degrees.

The description of the section at 50 cm is correct, hence your hope's
will become true.
