First Fuji prime? 18mm f2 or 23mm f2??? Please help.

Hi, thanks for any help in advance.

I'm trying to decide between the Fuji 18mm F2 & 23mm F2 as my first prime lens to go with my  X-T1. I have used the 18mm f2 & absolutely loved the black and white results I got from it, I also loved the size of it.

I shoot mainly black and white, conversations using Silver Efex Pro 2 but have started to use JPGs more.

I mainly shoot some landscape and I'm not sure if call it this is right but what I call literal street photography, so the buildings and the street itself, not people.

Correct me if I'm wrong but from what I've read the 23 has better IQ than the 18? But I can't seem to find much about which has better micro contrast or just many direct comparisons.

I would prefer the wider angle for the street photography but can deal with the 23mm. So which would you choose and why?

If you need any more info please ask
