To answer the question posed by fellow writer Todd Vorenkamp in his article about the venerable 50mm prime, the lens I would choose if I were to be stranded on a desert island would have to be a 35mm prime. Sure, the 50mm is an old and reliable choice that should cover most subjects, but it doesn’t work amazingly for anything specific and, frankly, I think it’s a little boring these days. The 35mm, on full-frame of course, will open the door to a different type of imaging experience, and it can do pretty much anything the 50mm can do, plus a bit more.

Like many photographers, I started off with the classic “nifty fifty” on film and digital cameras. It is a useful focal length, but arguably boring, due to how common it has become. I also find it somewhat limiting for many subjects; I was always craving something a little wider. Eventually, I relied on a 16-35mm for a lot of my documentary work, including environmental portraits, and I consistently found myself at the 35mm end. So, when I went to purchase some new glass, a 35mm became a priority, and now I have three different 35mm options sitting at home (which is too many, but I just can’t seem to part with any of them).
