I just looked at data from Amazon. Three out of the top ten selling lenses are 50mm lenses (Canon EF 50 F/1.8 – Nikon 50 F.1.8D, and Canon 50 F/1.4 USM. One additional zoom (18-200 Nikon F/3.5-5.6 DX VR) also covers that focal range and two more lenses, the Canon 55-250 F/4-5.6 IS and the Nikon 55-200 F/4-5.6 come real darn close.
It’s interesting to see this trend since 15 years ago, most people wouldn’t be caught dead shooting at 50mm.
