Favorite walk around prime lens - 35mm VS 50mm

What is your favorite focal length to use with a FF Nikon?
I've always used 50mm because of old days that I shot on film with SLR.
But I had a 35mm lens one my last film camera (Pentax) and I just loved that FOV. I can get a lot of information on my pictures with it (which I like more than just the details) without having to step back and without compromising too much the quality regarding the distortion.

I own a D750 now with 50mm f/1.8G but I'm thinking about buying a 35mm f/2 D to use as a walk around lens.
I tried the 35mm f/1.8 DX on it but I think it has too much distortion and chromatic aberrations to use on a full frame camera.

What are your favorite choice and why?
