Re: What is your standard prime?

Does that list consider price?  I would agree with some of the assessments though, and I have many of the lenses.  However, my personal experiences puts the 55-210 in the last place.  The 16mm f/2.8 is not as bad as advertised.  It is only bad at 2.8-4 but around 5.6-11 it is very good.

My choice is the 23mm f/1.4 and my Sony 35mm f/1.8.  They are perfect for family gatherings when you do not want to change your lenses and you do want to get good low light images without using a flash.

I agree the 85mm f/1.8 is the best lens I have used but it is not a standard prime, in the traditional definition.  However, it is great.
