    • Oh, yeah, I’ve had (and have) more 50s than anyone really needs. As far as picking one as a best all-around, the trouble is determining what one’s priorities are and how one defines “all-around”. For example, if someone shoots only during the day and outdoors, speed doesn’t matter at all, but someone else who shoots at night and indoors might see speed as an absolute necessity. What sort of rendering do you prefer? How important is compactness? What body are you using it on? There are too many factors for it to be anything more than a purely personal preference, I think, and I can’t say that I’ve made any systematic decision on the matter even for myself.
