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

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

I have 14 & 23 and they are both optically great.  I use the 23mm more often and really love the f1.4 aperture. However, it is not a small / discrete lens, so I am questioning whether I should get X100s instead. The rationale is this:
- for landscapes 18-55 is great stopped down
- for street/people the 100s would be fine
- for DoF isolation the 35mm f1.4 does a better job (though AF is tad slower)
But the 14mm I think I'll keep. It will complement 18-55 & 16-55 (If I buy one for weather resistance / GAS) & the 10-24 is bigger.
