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 !


Not sure the weight difference between the 23mm f2 and 27mm are worth it; think the biggest difference is the 27mm is sharper and the 23mm f2 has much quieter/faster autofocus.

Hmm I thought my newly bought 23mm f/2 WR is a bit noisy? I can feel it in the lens when focusing. Don't have a 27mm lens though.
