My current walkaround is 75mm

I like to take candid street shots, and grab detail shots of urban things. The 50 is great for this as the 75 equiv allows you to easily isolate from backgrounds.

having shot a lot with legacy 50 1.7 - 2.0 primes I can easily say that this lens beats them all wide open, especially in the corners.

At a very reasonable price, the only downside on this lens is lack of AF speed.
