Yeah we need samples really.

My best guess is the 23mm because that is 35mm full frame equivalent whereas 35mm is 53mm equivalent and a tad long for many shots. I have the 35 and despite it being a lovely lens find I don't use it much. I prefer the 18-55 zoom. It has OIS and is super sharp, is F2.8 and covers the range I use 90% of the time.


Yea definitely 23mm would be the winner for me in terms of most used focal length on my end but I guess I wanted to see what makes sense in terms of my lens line up! I basically carry a thinktank retrospective 5 and it fits 3 lenses nicely and was thinking the 14/2.8 + 35/1.4 + 55-200 combo might suffice but with that I loose my fave 23mm focal length but if I want to carry the 23/1.4 i think I would have to bring the 14/2.8 + 56/1.2 + 55-200 to compliment it and I have been in situations where the 35mm was quite uncomfortable to use given the space I was given! So I want to see if the 35/1.4 would give me the portrait bokeh I need to justify using that instead! If its a huge difference compared to the 23/1.4 and is quite close to the 56/1.2!
