If I was to only carry the one lens - the one on the camera - it would be a 35mm for full frame.

My current travelling light set up is different to that - I have a 50 on the camera, and a wide (24) in a bag or pocket somewhere. 50 is great for forcing a tight field of view, but there are times when wider is needed.

...the thing is, I really want to use a manual focus lens...

Simple solution.



Economical solution, too, beacuse when you no longer want to use a manual focus lens you only need to move a switch instead of buying a new lens.

Not funny, neither helpful  >:(

A bit sad coming from 'The King of the Gearheads'  ;)

I would like to thank everybody, bar one  ::) very much for their input and advice! Have decided to take the 28mm (read: 35mm) route based upon checking the 'focal length most used' as suggested! Cheers!
PS: I'm a gearhead too and proud of it so I'm off buying my Zeiss lens!  8)
