I can't think of any manufacturers that have ever made one, to be honest. It's just not as all-purpose at 35mm or 28mm.

In digital? But in film, there were.

I was thinking the same thing. Only vintage fixed lens rangefinder I can think of is the Yashica Electro 35 CC. Then again, it's hard to search online for rangefinders with a 35mm lens because all the results are for rangefinders that take 35mm film and don't have a 35mm lens

Actually, now that I rethink this... most of them have 40-45mm lenses, not 50mm. That Yashica is 45mm I believe. 45mm is close enough for me.

Yeah, the common Electro 35 is a 45mm lens. The Electro 35 CC that I mentioned is a rarer model with a 35mm f1.8 lens. http://camera-wiki.org/wiki/Yashica_Electro_35_CC

But I agree, 45mm is definitely much better than 35mm if the target is 50mm!
