I'm asking for opinions.

If you were allowed only ONE "prime" general purpose walk-around/indoor lens in either 28mm or 35mm for your DX camera what would you choose and why?

I know I can use a zoom of mine at 28mm, and I have a 35mm "prime" to experiment with so I can compare the focal lengths, but it is hard to decide using this method because both come out equally useful and I only want to have one prime lens in this focal range.

An additional fly in the ointment is the possibility of going FX someday, but that is not guaranteed.

Give me some opinions, reasoning, or experiences that will help me to decide.

Addendum: I have primes in the 35mm, 50mm, 85mm, focal lengths.

Thanks

Jerry
