    We all shoot different things in different ways, so there is no magic answer. I need wide much more than telephoto for what I do, so if I could only have two prime lenses it would be my 14/2.8 and my 23/1.4. But for someone who does a lot of portrait work, this would be a terrible combo...

    I am settled with the 56mm, I find it very versatile and the results are great, I sold my 35 f1.4 because I found the FOV's along the same lines and while I find the 35 f1.4 is one of Fuji's best, I find the 56 can do the same and more.

    I've been in a conundrum about wider lenses, experimented with the 18 and 23, thought about the 14 and 16 and 10-24.
    I have had the 23 f1.4 for a month, so still getting to know it, but haven't had much opportunity yet to come to any conclusions. I sold the 18 to fund the 23, but I kind of miss it now.
    I've been looking at Flickr shots from the 16 and many of them are impressive, but so is the 18 but in a different way.

    16 1.4, 23 2.0 and 35 1.4 The former 2 being my go to lenses. I shoot mostly street and the 16 & 23 are just stellar for it. The 35 1.4 for when I want it's pixie-like rendering.
    These lenses are so good, you will adapt to them.

    This Sunday when the sale hits, I think I'm going with the 23 and 35mm f2. The more I review my pics I'm constantly on 23 and 35mm on my 18-55mm kit lense.

    On another note, anyone planning to hit the sale this weekend?

    I'd like to, however, if our deals are anything like the Europe's, then there won't be a single F2 lens on sale.

    23+50 (f 2.0) would be my choice for carrying around.

    I am on the fence with that...like I said previously, I have the 18-55mm kit lense and when I review my pics, I'm constantly on 23 and/or 35mm range. Does it even make sense to get both? Since they are somewhat the same range, I can always crop from the 23mm.

    Get 23 first and check if cropping is your way of working. If you miss 35 - then you will get one.

    Very true. Makes perfect sense. Thank you all again!
