14mm lens best usage?
5 months ago

I was a zoom shooter for a while until the X100S and A7R+35mm and absolutely love the image quality from the primes.

For the X-T1, I have the 18-55 and want to try a prime along with it, 23mm and 35mm I can wait since the range is covered by the zoom. I tried the 14mm at the store briefly and it seriously intrigues me.

Can someone advise on what's the good use of this lens? I primarily shoot travel landscape, cityscape and quality family pics.

Seems there's a counter advise that anything wider than 24mm is getting tough for landscape space gets too wide and empty, scene gets too distracting, stitching available etc. But I really want to learn a new skill set and wide angle seems interesting.

Input and advice welcome!
