'ello I'm battling myself - 35mm or 50mm eqv. I've had both before, 23mm on my Fuji X100s and 35mm on my D7000 - roughly the eqv. mentioned before. That's not the question here, only I can decide that - need to look though my backcatalog and see what I favor most. Anywho, while the 17mm gets trashed and loved, the 25mm gets mostly love. And it includes a hood. And it's cheaper. And I get more DOF and less perspective distortion. So what I'm getting at is.... is it worth getting the 25mm for the opticals alone or is the 17mm plenty good? I'm a pixel peeper from hell and I'm really afraid that with the bad reviews I'll be let down. I'm having trouble finding raw sample files from the 17mm. What does a poor guy do?
