Re: 14/23 vs 16/27


I changed from 14/2.8, 23/1.4 and 35/1.4 to just 14/2.8 plus 27/2.8 in order to have a smaller setup but happily changed back to 14/2.8, 23/2 and 35/1.4 as soon as the 23/2 came out.

For me those three lenses are the perfect set of primes. Small and light and extremely versatile. The 14/2.8 is just so much more dynamic than a 16mm lens and the 35/1.4 is brilliant for closer shots or for narrow DOF. The 23/2 is sharp, compact and has a very fast AF. I have tried different combos but I always come back to those three lenses.
