Are the nostrils the last elements to be reconciled?

Zeiss produce a classic Biogon in a lens mount for the M, for which I've placed an order, to pursue a debate opened here some time ago with Valéry Lorenzo, on whether to be footloose in Paris with a 28 or a 50mm lens. We shall see what suits the circumstance the better, although in my heart of hearts I know I do agree with him.
Plainly the occasion of addressing a stationery passer-by with optical intent is best reconciled with the impartial focal length; but the occasion grows rarer every day. More and more, the broadly open scene is more coherent and less random, less misleading.
