I, too, carried a SupTak 85/1.8 as the 'normal' lens on a Spotty for many, many years. I expected I'd find a prime 43-50mm lens on an APS-C that would satisfy the natural evolution to digital APS-C. I have found NO combination of lens + APS-C sensor that fits that same 'comfort zone'.

It's interesting that I can't find a sweet spot with a zoom in that range today either and I've even tried to explore whether it's in the PP, or the shootin'.
