So I have the 23 1.4 and have been happy with it. However, after my recent vacation, I found myself regretting not getting the the 16mm. It also doesn't help when I read articles saying how great the 16 is.

Question - does it make sense to get the 16 if one already owns the 23? Will I get more utility with the 16 vs. the 23? I'm finding that I'm doing a lot more street and family outings given the smaller size of the X-T3. However, I look a lot of landscape pics on vacation (which is where I wished I had a wider lens).

Thanks.

I had the same feeling when I used to have the 23mm f2, I was wishing I had a wider lens in many occasions when in touristic places, I sold my 23mm and got the 16 f1.4, I don't regret at all.

It's wide enough when you need it, and with the actual 24/26mp sensors you can crop if you find it too wide in some photos
