But they have such a different FOV, so why is it interesting to compare them?
35mm and 50mm are not "such different" focal lengths and they are the often the first choice for fixed focals especially at large apertures, I read the article and yes I found it interesting as I'm sure did the the poster, good range of apertures detailed 100% clips. if I was in the market for either of these lenses it could influence my choice, If you didn't find it interesting pass on to the next post!
Yes, 35mm 1.8G and 50mm 1.8G has a different FOV.
Yes. it would be more interesting if I had compared with Sigma 30mm 1.4 Art or 35mm 1.4 Art
But that doesn't mean my post cannot be informative
to those who are considering to buy 35mm 1.8G or 50mm 1.8G
As I wrote in the post
I'm not saying " Don't buy 35mm 1.8G! Buy 50mm 1.8G! "
I'm just showing the resolution you can get from both lenses with D7100

The FOV of 35mm and 50mm on APS-C format, while obviously different, are similar enough that it is an interesting comparison. They are both on the long side of "normal" or the short side of "telephoto", however you want to slice it.
The blog post further does compare and contrast the FOV in the first two photos. The differences are clearly presented and available for interpretation.
These are two extremely common choices for a first prime lens. Users graduating from their kit zoom will have these two lenses in close consideration.
Therefore, it's certainly a useful post and contribution from rembart.
