At first it was hard going. Compared to the 35mm the 50mm seems like a tele, and only now am I getting my eye in for this focal length, but at last Iím having a ball.
Definitely, for me, less is more. My days of lugging tons of kit about are long-gone.
One M body and two lenses are about all the kit I need. But, who knows?...
Amazing! This is just the opposite of my situation. I normally shoot with the 50mm Elmar-M, a truly great lens. But I find there are situations where a somewhat wider lens would work better. So, now I'm carrying, in addition to the Elmar-M, the 35mm Cron Asph.
