    The 50mm lens always reminds me the good old days, the days before DSLR and before autofocus and before affordable zoom lens. In the 70s/80s, when we bought the SLR, it always came with a 50mm lens. And everyone started out with the 50mm lens and tried out different aperture and different perspective.

    I am afraid there is no 35/1.8 for Canon (not sure of others). But do you need it? Or do you visualise yourself to need it at all?

    The closest is the EF 35mm f2. Then there's also the much more expensive EF 35mm f1.4L. Nikon also has a 35mm f2 I believe.
