20, 24, 35 or 50? I think 50 is too close and 20 is too far. I feel like 35 is quite right, any suggestions?

I use both 50mm 1.8S and 20mm 1.4 ART for videos(lifestyle and family). 50mm is perfect for environmental video/portraits outdoors while 20mm is perfect for capturing clips/moments indoors. If 20mm is too wide, which could be sometimes, I simply use the DX crop in video which makes it a 30mm f/2 in video with the same UHD resolution (oversampled from 12mpx to. 8mpx). Perfect lenses imo.
