Re: Fujifilm XF 35 vs 23 (Portrait, People, Facial/Body proportion)

This is the age old question of which "normal" lens is preferred for the 35mm format. In those terms, it is 35mm vs 50mm (23mm vs 35mm on Fuji and other APSC). Just search on "35mm vs 50mm normal lens and you will get a load of material."

I've always preferred the 35mm FOV, so I love my X100S. The 50 is too tight for me. The fact that you like to capture some of the environment says 23mm to me. The 35mm on Fuji will be more about subject isolation.
