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.

you are weak:)

Question - does it make sense to get the 16 if one already owns the 23?

Yes, no, maybe.

Will I get more utility with the 16 vs. the 23?

It is a very different focal length. It seems that the old adage may apply - if you need to ask, don't buy it until you have a reason to use it.

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).

Composing with a wide angle may be challenging. Start by shooting panoramas with the 23 and see where it gets you.
