I think it depends on which camera you are shooting. I love the 50mm FL, but I'm shooting a 7D, so I would go for the 35mm. If I had FF, I would probably go with the 50mm.

I already have an 85mm prime and recently bought the 35mm.  I never thought I would like a 35mm as much as I do.  It has turned into my general take with me lens.  I am considering the 50mm.  But I keep asking myself the following question

"For what I shoot (street, landscape stuff), What would I be unable to do with both the 35 and 85mm??  If I were rich, the answer is clear -- I *need* every lens.  However I am not rich and I do want to rebuild my prime kit with some discipline.

Maybe after I finish re-building my prime kit, I will go back and get the 50.

If I did not already have the 35 or the 85 the decision on the 50 would be a lot easier.  So the posters who asked what do you already have bring up the key question.  You really can't ignore your existing kit when making FL decisions.
I shoot with a Camera Obscura with an optical device attached that refracts and transmits light

Thanks for all the posts! I just picked up the 35mm on Monday. So far I am very impressed with the build quality and sharpness. Cant wait to get more time with it...
