Re: 14mm or 23mm... (and I hardly ever do this)

If I had the 18-55 and felt that there are times where I want wider, I'd go with the 14mm as you already have the 23mm focal length covered in the zoom.  If I DIDN'T have the 18-55, I may go for the 23mm initially, as that focal length suits my shooting style better.  OR if I have the 18-55 and see that most of my shots are in the 20-30 range I would also go for the 23mm due to better IQ and bokeh.

I have a Sigma 10-20 for my Nikon D300 that hardly ever gets used, where my 24-60 got used frequently (before it broke).  I would have replaced the 24-60 with a 17-55 / 17-70 if I weren't getting into the X System; however, I opted to change systems versus adding more glass to my Nikon kit.
