Focal length statistics

Last weekend I used Aperture’s “smart album” feature to filter my photos from 2009 to today into groups of focal length: 
(all values converted to 35mm equivalent focal length)


< 35 mm: Wide angle
35 to 65: more or less normal
66 to 135 mm: a typical focal length for portraits
135 to 200 mm: tele
> 200 mm: long tele




It turned out that the biggest group is the normal focal length range, but not overwhelming the other groups.
You may try a similar statistics – especially whe you ask yourself whether a camera with a fix focal length like the Fuji X100 is made for you and your habits.
