No, I would just crop. Or buy an XE-1. 50mm feels like tunnel vision to me, too often. 35mm better captures what I see in front of me, and tells a better story, IMO. There is a reason the iPhone is 35mm, as well as Leica's X1.

What I WOULD buy is a Ricoh GR, or a Fuji version. I had several moments at Disney last week where I wanted 28mm, but not many where I wanted anything longer than 35mm.
