23 1.4...how's the rendering compared with 35 1.4?
1

Thinking of swapping my 35mm 1.4 for 23mm 1.4...

I really like the rendering of the 35mm 1.4, along with the size and cheaper...

But I'm finding I basically only use it when I'm taking photos of people...

I often find it too narrow for walking around on the street, and also too tight for most things indoors. Basically I need to carry another lens with it that's wider for street... Where as I could just plop the 23 on and leave it there I think.

Anybody switch or like 23 1.4 just as well?

On another note, I might also dump my 18-55 (which I don't use much) plus my Viltrox 85 to fund the 56 1.2 if I go this route...

leaving me with a 14/23/56 combo. (21/35/85 FF)
