I was thinking of 28mm on APS-C. I look at the viewfinder and it often looks wider than I tho.ught. If I leave the 28mm on the camera for a while, I get used to it. I guess "inbetweeny" describes how 28mm feels to me. I feel like I married the perfect woman at 35mm, but I'm still casually dating at 28mm.
Oh man, one could really run with this. I guess I'd say I have love affairs with both 28mm and 40mm, and having to compromise between them with a 35mm feels like "settling" to me

28mm and 40mm is a great combo for indoor shooting. 28mm is usually wide enough for dinner tables, group portraits or when you want to capture the whole body. 40mm is great for half body portraits of either 1 or 2 persons.

Kind regards

I have the same observation and use for such lens as well.

I'm OK with abandoning the analogy now.

There is a clear lesson for others here. I looked at reviews and comments and decided the M28/2.8 was not good enough for me. I had a couple of copies but quickly upgraded. On paper, my three best 28mm lenses are better in some way, and maybe it looks cool to own them, but actual photos - the goal - not so good. This is the path of the lens collector. Avoid at your peril! Meanwhile, Marc here simply uses the M28/2.8 to take photos.
