how much is 40mm xs f2.8 that is super pancake super sexy.....
Why I suggested it is because, I had the 35mm f/2.4, and didn't quite bond to it (it's a good lens no doubt though), I still have the 50mm f/1.4, and also have the 40mm XS f/2.8. I primarily shoot UWA landscapes/cityscapes so any UWA with 10mm that I happen to have will be a permanent fixture on the camera... And the 50mm is light, but I never seemed to bring it out when I had it. I usually throw the 40mm f/2.8 into the bag because it leaves such a small footprint, both size and weight wise. And I still do use the 50mm f/1.4 occasionally.

If you want more flexibility, 50mm f/1.4 can let you raise your shutter speed because of the two stop advantage (as opposed to raising ISO). Though I'd say, you'd want to shoot at f/2.0 for reasonable sharpness. So that reduces it to a one-stop advantage, which is less substantial, but still can make a difference. That's probably where pinholecam is coming from.
