Right.   That's what I meant.  I just know that I can photograph the same 
scene with the 35 at 1.4 that I can with the 50 at 1.0.  I still use the 
Noctilux a lot though because I like the shallow depth of field.  With the 
M8 the 36 is closer to a 50 and the 50 is more like a 75 so I find that I'm 
using the 35 more often on the M8.
