Re: Fuji 23mm f1.4 vs 35mm f1.4

The advantage is more of... it’s a better do it all focal length for street and travel imo...

They do render differently.

I do prefer photos out of the 35. It often makes a better photo than what the scene actually was and surprises me of how it handled the scene or lighting etc.

I wouldn’t say it is the focal length and aperture, it’s the optical design itself. I had a 35 1.2 lens and it had a completely diff look to it.

but I often feel cramped in my composition. It’s not my daily driver. Prefer 23 or pancake 27 for that unless I’m specifically roaming around for more candid people photos. I’d say the 18 also would be better lens to leave on the camera, though I don’t own it.
