Re: Xf 16 1.4 vs 23 1.4

I've got both.  I thought I could get by without the 23f1.4, but for me it meets a very important need for me:  group shots of people.

The Mighty 16 was my first Fuji lens and still one of my favorites because it's so flexible.  It focuses very closely [15cm?], renders great color and is very sharp.  Shooting people is fine if they're in the center of the frame - group shots look a bit odd.

The 23f1.4 resolves about the same as the 16f1.4 [70lpmm] and has even less uncorrected optical distortion [0.3% vs 0.9%].  The output is great, not quite as good as the 16f1.4, 35f1.4 or 56f1.2, but still very good.  It's perfect for family shots - a very useful focal length.
