Been thinking about this after I read an interesting comment from someone. They said it was heresy but that they found that everyone recommends a 50mm lens but can never find anyone who actually uses one. I had 50mm lens of one type or another for 5 years. I think I can count on 1 hand the number of shots I took with it. So I sold it.

It's the most recommended lens, it seems, but I rarely see any shots posted anywhere using it. So... do you use a 50mm lens?
