Re: SLR Magic HyperPrime 23mm F1.7 (2013 version)

They're OOC JPEGs and I keep my color settings on neutral (also I was shooting on manual and wasn't really practicing the correct "expose to the right" procedure I adhere to) so I think it'd blame the camera for the contrast.  Oh and most of those shots were in the evening shade, lots of gray and blue hues.

While I do have the 35mm f/1.8 OSS it's hard to compare.  Size-wise they're about the same, though the 23mm feels a ever so slightly heavier due to it's all-metal design.  The aperture on the 23mm is clickless so I guess that's good for video, but keep in mind no stabilization or AF.  Plus there's the difference in FOV (50mm equiv. vs. 35mm equivalent).  I think I'll be using the 23mm for intimate social situations and the 35mm for run-and-gun street/event stuff.
