I have 14, 35, 55-200, 18-55. I would get the 23.


14mm is a great lens if you have a specific need for that wide. The 23mm would be perfect for panorama feature which will always be wider than 14mm anyway.

On a recent holiday I used 18-55 and when doing panoramas I used it at 23mm before I would put on the 14mm. A better more impressive image resulted. Sometimes though if I wanted ultra wide indoors - like a fabulous ornate ceiling - I used the 14mm in panorama mode to get everything in. But 95% I used the 18-55.

23mm is a useful focal length. 14mm pushed everything back too much.
