Best 35mm Reporter's Lens
What difference does it make whether I put a 35mm or a 50mm lens on my camera? In both cases, I get a picture that looks just like what I saw with my eyes. Should we throw the 35 mm and the 50 mm lenses on one big pile then? And let you choose the best lens for you from that?
It doesn't work that way. The first lens with a fixed focal point of an amateur photographer is usually a 50mm. The preferred lens of a professional photographer is 35 mm. To give all amateur photographers a look at the tools of professional photographers, we have compiled a list with the best documentary lenses.

Lens manufacturers design lenses in which distortion, color separation and vignetting are not optimally corrected. They assume that lens errors will be automatically corrected in the camera (for jpg files) or afterwards in Lightroom or Photoshop (for RAW files). The advantage of this choice, for manufacturer and consumer, is that you can achieve high image quality at relatively low costs, because you do not have to use expensive types of glass to prevent all lens errors. But there are also, usually the more expensive, lenses where a manufacturer has gone to extremes to prevent lens errors in the lens design. CameraStuffReview shows tables and graphs of Imatest results with lens corrections ("in-camera jpg") and without lens corrections ("RAW" outside of Photoshop or Lightroom). You can thus use the scores that are closest to your workflow.
