unless you have a very unusual view finder/lcd screen on your camera, won't the viewfinder/lcd screen show you approximately what your crop sensor sees (as opposed to the image circle cast by the lens?  in which case a 50mm lens is going to give you only the effective frame of "view" of a 75mm lens, so your comment does not seem to make any sense.
