See title. What is your favorite FL -- without regard to favorite lenses! That is, if you love the IQ of your 35L you might find yourself use that FL because of the merits of the lens. But if all lenses were essentially the same, what FLs do you think you would use the most?

Can't really decide on that one...... either 50mm or 85mm. Hardly ever use anything else but those two.
