Re: 23mm 1.4f v 2.0f

terms of IQ sharpness ,

at F/2, F/1.4 lens shows slightly less vignette and it's slightly sharper. It's very much ignorable and don't choose one over other based on this because it's very much marginal and you won't even notice it. Also remember f/1.4 has the ability to shoot f/1.4 so If the DOF is enough you can always shoot wide open and reduce ISO / increase shutter speed.

focus speed?

F/2 is noticeably faster in focusing than f/1.4

If you want fast focusing lightweight weather resistance lens go with f/2.

If shooting faster than f/2 is important then choose f/1.4. If you don't want f/1.4 never choose f/1.4 go with f/2

I wanted subject separation and i bought f/1.4 version
