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

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

I purchased the 23mm F1.4 - I am like you - I like fast glass and the 23mm is one sharp lens.

The 14mm F2.8 to me is not really what I would call fast glass for a prime. Plus I tend to use wider lenses on a tripod where large apertures don't really matter.

I am saving my money for the 10-24 F4 zoom.

I would really like to take advantage of the current discounts on both of these lenses but not having had my hands on either one I find it difficult to choose.. I like fast glass.. both lenses seem to be very good in all respects... but I'm not sure I can justify buying both at this time.

These two cost about the same amount of money so that is not an issue.

I rarely ask for others to help me make a decision but in this case I am going to do so.

If you have the time, please list the reasons you would buy one or the other... thanks! I look forward to your input and your help in keeping me from buying both due to GAS.

The ability to 'see' the shot is more important than the gear used to capture it.
