In these cases using a zoom lens to shoot at those focal lengths for a day to find your personal preference.

Yup, already did that with the 16-50 mm. That's where I realized that used very little the FL between ~35 mm and ~45 mm. That's why I say that it is probably not the right lens for me

For me, 24/28mm eq can be too wide for eye detail (color.) 50mm eq can be too long for shots in a smaller room. 33-35mm is a better balance between 24mm and 50mm. Being a little faster than the kit, a little wider than the 50-S, a little softer (not an S,) and A LOT smaller is a fair compromise. The 40f2 might be slightly better for subject isolation.
Video users may want/have to just deal with the larger s-primes or a manual third-party 1.4 lens. It will be interesting to see the pro video and vlogger reviews on this lens.

Most smartphones are 28f2 these days. SLR images with wider or zoomed focal lengths will set your photos apart from everything else. I couldn't decide between the 28SE or 40 so preordered both and will keep whichever one shoes up first wins. I just want something compact (like 1.8G primes,) and better than the 16-50 or 24-50 offer.

I was initially very interested in the 28 mm, as it would be a really good FL for me on DX. However I was a bit disappointed when they announced it was going to be f2.8, as that's not great on DX if you want to be able to do low-light photography. I really wish Nikon made some proper DX primes, but I guess I will have to get a Viltrox at this pace.
