If you have a history, on the other hand, with both focal lengths, you will have developed a sense for their differences, and might utilize each for different kinds of shots, or might simply prefer one over the other.


I do.   Ive shot probably thousands of shots with 50mm on a full frame, and before it on film.  I also shot probably close to 4000 shots on m43 with 20mm 1.7 lens which is 40mm equivalent.     Further, I did try 40mm 2.8 pencake on Canon 5DM3 when I was shooting Canon full frame, but I returned it as I found 2.8 on a pancake too pedestrian in terms of light power, as I've used to shooting with F/1.2-1.8 prime lenses on Full frame.   Perhaps I am just prejudiced against slow primes (I also owned 19 and 30/2.8 Sigma primes on Sony NEX and did not like those either).  I feel that it is generally easier to design a prime than a zoom, and 2.8 is for zooms.   On the other hand I own Fuji X100s with F/2 lens so I guess I contradict myself
