Re: 14/23 vs 16/27

I have 14, 16(f2.8), 23(f2), 27 and 35 (f1.4). I tend to use them in sets depending on what I am doing:

- need very small and light: 16+27

- for general walkaround/photoshoots etc.: 14+23+35

If I was absolutely forced to keep only one lens it would be the 27 as its not much narrower then the 23 and is wider than the 35 - it just hits the sweet-spot for me as a general purpose lens (and thats before considering the size and IQ). I've been on numerous trips where the 27 was the only lens I took.

(PS. I'm still a sucker for the 14/16 FOV though).
