For me the 50mm lens is an akward focal length, its too short to get a good working distance to the subject and is too long for a wider view. I sold my 50mm f1.4 after buying a 50-150mm f2.8 and have been thrilled with the change. Fits my style far better and delivers far better results.

That sounds to me like a better focal length given the considerations from your initial post. It sounds to me like you want a field of view at least as wide as 35mm on full frame.

I have several lenses in this range, so the poll itself is not interesting to me.
