Hi ALL,

So i currently do travel photography and a bit of portraits while at it. I currently have the

xt3 & 35mm f2

I was thinking of adding the 18-55 to join my kit, but i just heard aout the 16mm 2.8 which is small and light. They are about thesame price considering the 16mm 2.8 brand new and the 18-55mm second hand. Are both thesame image quality when shot at 16 and 18 ? which would you recommend

Thanks

I just got my 16mm f2.8. I'm no pixelpeeper nor am I a pro. I am very pleased with it, at least for now. It feels to me like an excellent companion to the 35mm f2, which I also own. I think that with those two lenses, you'd have a better kit than if you added the 18-55 to your 35mm f2, but that is just me.
