X-T1 and 23 - GOOD CALL?


Have X-T1 (as of tomorrow). - Selling my X-E1.

Lenses on hand: 35, 18-55, 55-200, Tamron 90 (for macro).

Just got a bad 27 and returned it. (not sharp)

I don't feel to called to the 27 anymore - for some reason I think my need for that focal length can be met with the zoom.

The 35 is a great lens - no doubt - but I don't THINK I'll be bother by a physically larger 23 and wider angle. Could save money and let the zoom carry me for this angle too - but I like the fact that the 23 is faster and give a better bokeh.

Cons are - price (though helped a bit by the sale)...and the slight addition of weight.

Am I missing something here?

Is it illogical to pass on the 27 at $200 and go for the 23 given my current lens lineup? Would you recommend I hang with the 35 as it IS a great lens.

My "plan" is to sell the 35, NOT get the 27 and pick up the 23 for the X-T1.

Later - IF - Fuji revamps the 35, then I might add her back in if funds/needs allow.

Simple YEAH or NEAH - if you can. Additional comments welcome. Trying to get additional input before a sale or purchase.
