Re: Not unusual

On a crop. I like the ~85mm. 85mm is my favorite full frame lens length (I like shooting people).

I bring my camera everywhere with me. I bring it to work everyday. Most days I'll just bring one lens. So I look at the shelf in the morning and go what I do feel like today. It's always fast (2.8 or better), but often I'll grab the 50 1.8. It's tiny, weighs nothing, and performs well (amazingly well on my new body).

Is that on a cropped body or full frame? I agree with some other posts here that on my cropped body I find 50mm isn't wide enough for general use. If I had the 28mm F/2.8 or the 35mm f/2.0 I think I would make much more use out of it.
