Re: 35 is as versatile as you make it

Sorry, but that's not true.  I have & love my 35mm Fuji lens. It's really woprld class.  Of course, I can shoot portraits with it, but forget about doing real portraiture with it.  The optical physics of the lens just distorts a face too much elongating it) just as a long telephoto will flatten a face.

If you think you can use a ~50mm lens for professional portraiture, go try to do so.  None of your potential clients will accept the result.  If you're shooting photos of your kids, the requirements are less stringent.

It's why short tele are what are used for portraits in-studio. If you think that's not true, give us all an example of a pro who does portraits w/a lens of that focal length.
