    At this point in time, has anyone noticed the nice bell shaped Normal curve of the total range of prime lenses?

    The standard 50mm forms the peak of the curve, with the other ends tapering off at the extreme ends of UWA and telephoto lenses.

    Simply fascinating!

    The 50mm lens seems to be the jack of all trades. Good for everything and is the most used of all primes.
