The Nikon 35mm f/1.8 is the ideal normal prime lens for and APS-C camera as it's pretty close to both definitions of "normal" (geometric and angular) and it's a much more comfortable angle of view.
You're right about the 'normal' focal length being closer to the 35mm, but the 50 nowhere near as restrictive as you imply. It is also so much cheaper and I absolutely love mine. So, I'm keeping it!
The day you think you've found perfection is the day you stop looking, then someone else will find it and move in front of you.
