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.

Think about what do you like shooting more. 23mm (35 FF) or 14mm (21 FF) scenes?

With the X-Pro I do mostly streets, I have the 35, the 18 and the 14 lenses. Most of my shots are:

14mm ~= 10%

18mm ~= 80%

35mm ~= 10%

So if I were to buy new lenses, it would be the 23. Setting math aside is a lot more versatile than the 14mm.

Hope it helps,
