50mm was popular when people used rangefinder cameras from Leica, Nikon, Canon, and others. For the past 35 years and the advent of the DSLR and high IQ zoom lenses, the 50mm is a lens lacking in any strengths.

It is middle of the road mediocrity. 50mm is too long for landscapes and too short for people or wildlife photography. It is good for astro photography pano images to be stitched together but that is a very small niche.

My M3 and 22 2.0 STM fit fine in most of my coat pockets. Too bad I rarely need a coat! I rarely remove the 22mm so it's basically a fixed lens compact for my use. I'd rather have a 17mm F/2.0 but one isn't available.

My Petri f1.9 Color Corrected Super film camera has a 4.5CM lens. It dates to 1957.

Edit to add: That is 45 MM Some newbie will ask what 4.5 CM is and some old timer will complain that I added this.

My mom's Yashica Electro 35 had a 45mm 1.7 lens. (It was a bad match, mom and rangefinder. She was forever leaving the lens cap on while she shot)

The cataract in my right eye precludes any use of rangefinders for the moment. Surgery soon.
