Hi Caerolle and all the others,

good to get some info from people who actually have the lens.

23 mm is on the list for future purchase, costs nearly as much as the whole kit after discount!

35 mm is not for me, have the Nikon 35/1.8 on the D 5 100: fst and excellent optics but too narrow!

I am livng in Thailand, here everyhting is narrow and crowded compared to Europe. Even temples and palaces you cannot get on the photo with eff. 53 mm as you are allready with your back against the next wall!

Streets are narrow, "street photography" here is mostly markets, same as above.

Read about "analog" feeling of the 18 mm, that sounds good! Sharp in the center - sounds good as well, soft corners don't bother me - might get lost in the unsharp areas (bukhe) anyway?

BR
