Hi everybody,

Now that the 27mm has WR and AR its form factor is really appealing.

I already have the 23mm f2 and really like it so far. Only complain could be that i would like it to be a pancake for street photography.

I especially like the f2 aperture as I somehow get nice separation (for a 23mm) that gives a bit of a 3d feeling to the picture. Ok, its not comparable to my 50mm or the f1.4 version but its ok for my taste.

I was wondering if I would loose this bokeh if I would switch to the 27mm as its f2.8 max. But considering it's slightliy longer I wonder if that compensate ?

Some of you got example of 23 vs 27 at max aperture on both ?

Thanks a lot !


The main reason to change would be if you want the 27mm focal length...otherwise it's not really worth the hassle of changing as you already have the 23mm...if anything you're losing out with the f2.8.
