Default settings:

v2.79: Lens 35mm, Sensor 32mm

v2.8: Lens 50mm, Sensor 36mm

Just out of curiousity what is the reason for that change?

    $\begingroup$ I feel I heard somwhere (blender today?!?) that they changed the defaults to something more similar to the real world (36mm sensor is the full frame format and 50mm is one of the most often used lenses and is not deforming the objects as much as the 35mm). $\endgroup$ – Carlo Jun 27 '19 at 14:56
