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.

Unless there's something going on with distortion with the zoom, the likeliest explanation is that the markings on the 18-200 are just inaccurate.  Have you checked the EXIF data to see what focal length the lens "thinks" you're using ?
