Fullframe: do you consider 50mm as 'standard' ?
6 months ago

For me the definite answer is: NO.

Reason: the FOV of human eyes is a lot more, about 90º and indirect even 180º. Back in 1982 when I bought my first SLR, the Ricoh KR-5 with a 50mm lens i was disappointed with the FOV. Because of lack of knowledge (and funding) i did not buy a wide angle yet. However in 1984 I got my first real wide angle: a Tokina 17mm.

For me about 24...30mm is 'standard' for FF and 15...18mm for APS-C.
