Re: Lens recommendation: is 23mm a must-have?

Thanks Al! I used to have Panasonic 25mm 1.4 and I used it for cat (indoor) and street photos (not while hiking of course), but found it a bit too tight...

For what you shoot that is a great set as most of that type of work is not shot shallow DOF. What the 23mm brings is f/1.4 while the zoom gets you f/3.2 at that FL. For hikes the 14 and 18-55 are a perfect combo which I use on long grueling mountain hikes. A 23 would be excess weigh where weigh matters.
