Re: Lens recommendation: is 23mm a must-have?

It's not a 'must have' but it's a 'would be nice to have'. I have used it alongside the 35mm f1.4 and bought the 35 instead, partly because I think the focal length suits me better and partly because of the price. I also bought the 14mm and the 18~55.

Every time I buy a new camera I seem to ask if I should have a 35mm equivalent or a 50mm equivalent, and I keep changing my mind! I think I prefer the 50mm FOV as a standard but find 35mm more versatile for indoors. I guess if I keep writing I'll talk myself into the 23 too, but the zoom is actually pretty good coupled the high ISO capabilities of the X-T1.
