oopsie, RobC:
I was referring to your post #95, in which you praised the narrow depth of field look and the discipline of shooting at one focal length as a reason for beginning photographers to choose a fast normal lens. Hear, hear! As you know, that fast normal lens (50mm f/1.8 or f/1.4) was the kit lens of 35mm film cameras way back when, when zooms were dreadful (1970ish). I still have my first lens, 55mm f/1.4 Mamiya-Sekor M42 lens, and use it (via adapter) every once in a while.  The good news is that the nifty fifty is cheap enough for beginners to get along with a f/4 utility normal zoom. For APS-C photographers, 50mm is a decent portrait length.
