Yes, I have a mount like that, which is fine if you are shooting landscape orientation, but a tripod collar is needed for portrait without needing major extra mounting on that thing.


DA*55 (already mentioned)?

F/FA 50 / 1.4?

F/FA 50 / 1.7?

DA 50 / 1.8?

DFA 50 /2.8 macro?

Sigma 50 / 1.4?

Even the Sigma 17-50/2.8 and Tamron 17-50/2.8 could be used.

Lots of manual options, especially the Zeiss T* 50 / 2 macro.

Just generally I couldnt think of any focal length other than the 50 you are asking for which has dozens of lens options available.

But a 50 on a crop sensor does not act the same and give you the same field as a 50mm on full frame.  I thought with the 43mm and 60mm I could be above and below and have them cover similar ideas as a 50 or 85 prime combo.  just slapping a 50mm on a crop doesn't solve the problem that it does not give me the same field of view as a 50 n FF.
