I will swim against the tide and say that if Sony makes a 50mm version of this, I'm in—I can to crop to get a 75mm FOV. It's subtle, but even 35mm distortion for head-and-shouilders framing of people I find troubling. I see no unflattering distortion in a decent 50, if I do not get too close, so for me, a 50mm lens on the FF Sony would be a winner.
Yeah, head and shoulders framing is usually not in the realm of 35mm, unless you're maybe taking a picture of a child, or someone with a overly flat face, or if you're Platon. That's what I've come to like about 35mm, in that it keeps me from taking head and shoulders portraits and forces me to focus on environmental portraits, which I tend to like better, anyways. I can still break out the old Nex-5 and manual lens if I absolutely have to take a head and shoulders portrait, which hasn't really happened since I switched from 50mm to 35mm as my main lens last year.
