I think thats why I like the 50mm focal length (or rather, almost anything between 35 and 75) .. its just so versatile. You may not get 14 or 15mm for a landscape, (or in the case of the shot below, a cloudscape) but it really is just fine. It might not be as fabulous as an 85 for portraits, but it does the job pretty nicely. And even if you can't go 1:1 for macro/closeup, its still decent. I havent been shooting much lately, and these are just from out my front door... but I have no desire to take the 18.5mm off the V1... at all. The morning sky today. Tom wants my porridge (yes, I'm bad. I sit at the computer and have breakfast) My tuckeroo tree is soooo grateful for the rain, theres been nearly none since last November. This is a manhole cover which is in the middle of my driveway. The driveway is sinking, and the scrape marks are from the bottom of the engine bay going over the top. Oh joy.
