The tough part is deciding which eye of your subject you want in focus...

It depends on the magnification of your subject in the frame. Depth of field is much more dependent on magnification and f-stop than on focal length.

Theoretically correct. And by extension a single fixed focal length lens should suffice for any photographer!

Yes 26, but 25 were based on SMC Takumars lenses redesigned into K-Mount versions.

The brand new lens was of course the legendary K50/1.2, which there was no SMC Takumar version.
ahh that seems more understandable to me!

I don't understand what you are saying. You seemed to imply that shooting with a long fast lens would necessarily result in extremely shallow depth of field. I pointed out that it would not. we see this frequently in sports photography. Using a long lens for a full-body shot of a person is not an esoteric thing.

That is in no way an implication that all focal lengths are equal.
