I've read that the big thing with very fast lenses is that you can stop them down to f1.8 or f2 and have sharpness corner to corner. I do use my 23 a lot between f2 - f2.8 and it is superb; I only use f1.4 for those seldom small-DoF shots.

Here's the 23 at f2.8 (and I can imagine taking a shot of one of the girls at f2 with the 56) giving me enough DoF just about. It's all about having the flexibility and leeway -
