Re: You have almost too many lenses already...

Need vs. want, the eternal struggle I was really tempted by 10-24 but the size/weight seems daunting, seeing that I do a lot of WA shots while traveling/hiking. That's why I got the 14mm.

I have ordered X-T1 and the following lenses: 14mm, 18-55mm, 60mm, 55-200mm. So, with the lens sale ending soon, is there another lens I should buy?

I mainly do landscape, animals (my cat and wildlife encountered while hiking), street, and want to get into macro (mainly flowers and creatures on flowers/grass/leaves, etc.).

Is 23mm necessary if I already have the lenses above? Especially given that I don't really do street .......

You have already more than enough.

If you later need a really usable WA, the 10-24 looks like a great lens.

You will very likely use the 18-55 in 80% of all images
