I will start by saying that this looks to be a great product, which reminds me of the fixed-lens rangefinders of the 1960's and early 1970's. It leads to two questions, though:

1. Why is it always a 35-40mm lens (incl. those aforementioned rangefinders)? Am I the only person who pines for a fast 50mm equ.?

I ask myself the opposite question. Why do people like the 50mm equivalent? The angle of view is so constricting for interior shots and even street shots. I find 35mm to be more natural and useful. But hey, that's just me (well...and apparently Fuji too).
