    A 50mm lens is considered a “normal lens” on a standard 35mm film camera or a ”full-frame” or “FX” digital camera, though it's actually a bit long, about 43 mm would be more correct.* A normal lens is one which gives a field of view comparable to that of the human eye.

    Your D5200 has a sensor that is smaller than that of a full 35mm frame, and so, to get the same field of view, you need, proportionally, a shorter lens. This is the “crop factor” of which you've surely heard, often given as about 1.5, though 1.55 is more accurate. Your 50mm lens, on your D5200, gives about the same field of view than a {50 1.55 } 77.5mm lens would give on a 35mm film camera. To get the equivalent on your D5200 of a 50mm lens mounted on a 35mm film camera, what you really wants is a {50 155 } 32mm lens. 35 is close enough.

    I don't really do architectural shots, so I can't comment there.
    I'll second that.
    Now if @AhmedGhanam only has a 50, then the 17-50 would be my choice as well. But I thought that he probably would have the "kit" 18-55...

    Good grief. Wife and I are amazed that looks just like the house we moved from in Dunwoody/Atlanta,GA. 4 years ago...

    ^ It must have been a popular style. A lot of them were built around here 30-40 years ago.

    It depends. Ive got both, I used to use my 35mm all of the time but I dont even carry it with me anymore. That being said Im not ready to sell it, I use my 50mm for outdoor portraits as its too narrow for indoors and use the 35mm indoors. I enjoy shooting landscapes but since the birth of my son portraits have become increasingly addictive to me.
