I've tried two of the original 23mm f1.4 lenses. Both were returned. Both had really bad CA's and focused inconsistently much of the time. I ended up keeping the 23mm f2.0 as it focuses accurately, quickly, and quietly. Also little to no CA, it's more compact and it's WR (FWIW).

I was tempted by the new version but I've decided to keep my primes small and let my zooms be the larger/heavier lenses in my kit.
