Georg beautiful bokeh on those photos especially the last one - amazing!
Georg you have put into words my exact feelings about those focal lengths. I had never thought of the 35 with that exact description, but it sums it up entirely. Your thoughts on the other lenses certainly entertains a lot of thought and I believe that you have nailed them as well
As individuals we are drawn to certain lenses which is why I love fixed lenses as opposed to zooms. I found that with a zoom I am always at one end or the other
I prefer primes over zooms too, but one of the reasons for it is irrational for sure: I fear I could become a "lazy" photographers if I get a superb zoom like Nikon's AF-S 24-70/2.8.
