>Am I the only photographer on the list that doesn't have any use for the 50mm? > >perplexed... No, Greg, you are far from the only photographer who doesn't like "normal" focal lengths. Ansel Adams was another. But I think a lot of photographers haven't actually tried them enough to say one way or the other. Not you! But many. I for one love the look of normal lenses. Though at this point I favor 35mm, I plan to get a 50 Summilux R and probably a Noctilux eventually, and a 50 Summicron M for when I don't want the weight of the Noctilux. The pictures I have that are taken with 50mm or 55 or 60 mm lenses have a classic look to them. Kind of like what pictures looked like in the past. No surprise, they were in much more use back then. Different strokes. Eric Welch St. Joseph, MO http://www.ponyexpress.net/~ewelch I disagree with unanimity.
