I can only agree on that 100%. I do have some people i consult regularly when going through my pics. Sometimes i get commenta from very renommated street photographers that help me a lot. You are miles ahead of me in many aspects of photography and SP more specifically but I think I do know a bit about SP and have a clue what to look at. Do appreciate you are here in this forum .

A complete other issue whilst I got you " on the line" . I know you use or used quite a bit the fuji x100S . Now I feel tempted to that cam already long time but i find myself using the outer sides of my 24-70 mm range lense rather regularly in situations that I cannot physically get to the preferrable spot of shooting with 35mm. Sometimes getting closer or further away is physically impossible or the situation drives me to 70 mm for example for an other reason. I cannot imagine being out there with the very limit of the 35% although 85 % of my pics are with 35 mm. Maybe some food for though from your side to let my brain decide rather than be tempted all the time.

thanks and best regards

I can totally relate to what you are saying because I have been there. I only use zooms on professional shoots now, not for street photography. I personally prefer 28mm for street, I use the wa adapter on the x100s or the GR and although i have no problem using a 35mm lens, I need time to get used to it, I dont change lenses for up to two month, it takes me approx one to two weeks to develop the right feel for the focal length of choice. After about 2 weeks I find myself in sync with things around me and at the right distance to the subjects, changing lenses or zooms just add confusion
