Weekly poll #4 : What is your favorite focal length for street photography?

I made some changes to the poll format to allow Ipad/mobile users to participate. Note that the poll lists 24x36mm full frame equivalents, so if you are on a smaller/larger sensor, please make the conversion. Also, and to make it more interesting, feel free to share your lens details in the comments section below.

Focal length

Though I usually shoot with 35mm and 50mm focals, I’d probably go with a 50mm lens if I had to choose one only.

As for last week’s poll “What is your main focus method ?” (191 voters). The results showed a 50/50 split between manual and autofocus shooters. Manual focus users tend to prefer to focus using the viewfinder/LCD over zone focus, while autofocus shooters clearly privilege the one point method over multi points.
