I thought it looked a little longer than a 50, but most people just slap a 50mm on it and call it a day

I love the look of large aperture telephotos, especially the look of old manual lenses. In my opinion, lenses are like resturuants. Modern ones are like big corporations (mcd's, burger king). They go for consistancy of look. Early manual lenses are like mom and pop/hole in the wall places-- they are cheaper and way more unique, with desirable results.
