Does anyone use their 50mm?
1 month ago

I have a few zoom lenses which can do 50mm for me if I really needed it.  I dont ever really need a fast 50mm.  I asked my buddy who is a known "Canon Explorer of the Light" and he said he uses his 50mm as a dust cap for his various camera bodies.  Neilvn, a notable blogger and NJ/NY photographer, has stated in his blog that 50mm is not useful for his purposes.

I dont know anyone who says that 50mm is the ideal portrait or landscape focal length.  Landscapes are usually accomplished from 35mm on down while portraits are done 85mm and above.

So what is the use of the 50mm besides a dust cap for the camera body?
