I would really like to take advantage of the current discounts on both of these lenses but not having had my hands on either one I find it difficult to choose.. I like fast glass.. both lenses seem to be very good in all respects... but I'm not sure I can justify buying both at this time.

These two cost about the same amount of money so that is not an issue.

I rarely ask for others to help me make a decision but in this case I am going to do so.

If you have the time, please list the reasons you would buy one or the other... thanks! I look forward to your input and your help in keeping me from buying both due to GAS.

The ability to 'see' the shot is more important than the gear used to capture it.

This Nikon App may help you sort out the angle of view question. Use the DX setting.

I have both lenses and they are excellent.

The 14mm can challenge, though not beat, the Zeiss 21 on FF imo.

f1.4 is great on the 23 and I know you know enough to weigh the differences between that, the f2.8 on the 14 and the new f4 zoom.
