dont get this lens stuff.. i want a 35mm like my 18-200mm vr II at 35m
Nov 6, 2012

I am looking to buy a prime when i want to shoot Street and dont want to lug around my 18-200mm. for reasons beyond me, my 50mm 1.8 prime seems to give a  more narrow view than setting my 18-200 at 50mm. i know there is physics involved, but my Bachelor in Science degree is 36 years old.

that seems to suggest to me that a 35mm prime will not give me any meaningfull wider range than my zoom at 35mm..

so, if i want a small lens for this type of photography.. should i spring for a 24mm ?

(a fast lens would be nice as i also do street later in the day.. but not sure i want to spend over a thousand for a fast 24mm lens..  is there a say.. 2.8 nikon or other manufacturer, (autofocus) which would do the trick ?.
