So what's the deal with the 23mm f2? Good lens or not?
1

I am looking to add a prime to go with my 18-55 lens for my XT2 and I really like the 35mm equivalent view. The new 23/2 seems like an intriguing lens but the reviews are all over the map and I'm confused. The Angry Photographer said this is a must have lens and along with the 16 1.8 the best lenses in their lineup. Then I search threads and read some reviews and I keep hearing that it's soft wide open and that many people are disappointed. Has anyone here recently bought a copy that could comment before I purchase one?

Nikon AF-P 18-55mm F3.5-5.6G VR
