I know of someone who has 50 or so 50mm lenses...

As for me, I've only got six 50mm lenses, only one of which is Leica:

DR Summicron
Nikkor-H Auto 50mm 1:2
Ai Nikkor 50mm 1:2
Ai Nikkor 50mm 1:1.4S
EL-Nikkor 50mm 1:2.8
Carl Zeiss Jena Flektogon 50mm 1:4


I still do find 50mm most versatile for 35mm photography.
