Seems like you're trying to have it both ways at 40.

Fight me. 50mm is too tight. You lose too much contextual detail, especially if you're doing street photography. It feels too confining. You can only "zoom with your feet" so far back in certain settings. 35mm gets closer to the natural FOV of the human eye and brings in more of the scene, more of the action that's happening around the subject, tells the wider story.

Is this Wyrm?

Depends on what you consider landscape. Sounds like you're talking about architectural, which is a whole different beast in itself.

Misread thread title. For all around non-landscape or portrait, I really love my MF 28mm/f2 nikon ais lens.

I bought some Leica and my girlfriend loves it

I only bought it because it looked like the one my parents had
