135 to 120, and lens choice
For as long as I have shot with a 135 camera, most recently a Leica M3, I have always preferred the 50mm lens to any other length.
I have recently been testing and shooting some medium format cameras. I have a 75mm lens and a 50mm lens. And while I understand the 75/80 have a similar field of view as my favorite 135-50s, I really have been loving the 50mm lens on the larger format. I find myself shooting similar kinds of photographs, but just loving them more.
I have always preferred the 50 as it appears more natural and elegant to me, but I find it so odd that the field of view isn't an issue, and that I prefer it to other lenses, again, in a different format
Has anyone else found themselves preferring a specific focal length, regardless of format?
