To Fujifilm 27 mm Users

As a longtime Canon user I am gradually changing my use to the Fuji system (I'm tired of lugging all the heavy equipment on my travels) and I'm looking for some advice.

I bought the kit lenses when I purchased the X-E2 and I'm now looking for a walk-around prime lens, particularly for street photography. I've been looking at the 27 mm and I like the size for discreetness and lightness. However, the 23 mm keeps popping up as being truer to the 'old' days of photography (35 mm FF - I'm an old romantic) and so I'm seeking for some advice based on your experiences. I am looking for quality first of all, followed by size and weight.

I would appreciate your comments both pro and con for both these lenses, if possible. BTW, I'm really enjoying using the X-E2.

Thanks,

Luis Curran

The virtue of the camera is not the power it has to transform the photographer into an artist, but the impulse in him to keep looking.
