This completely ignores the need for a macro lens. If I had a macro lens I wouldn't have to crop so damn much. Well, that and I have no idea what I'm doing.
Only Sigma DSLRs have a 1.7x crop factor. All other non-Canon crop DSLRs have 1.5x (really about 1.52-1.53x or so) and Canon DSLRs have 1.6x, which makes 35mm lenses perfectly reasonable choices to achieve a 50mm POV. Four-thirds DSLR's (Olympus, Panasonic) have a 2.0x multiplication factor for POV equivalency but not really cropping, as their lenses natively have much smaller imaging circles.
