Both of these lenses are super nice. But I wouldn't be able to do without the 18 as well.. there are just too many situations that call for something wider than the 27 (40mm equiv.). And just to remind you, Joe... some of your best images here are made with wide angle lenses!

Perfect... unless you want to replace them all with that lovely 18-55!

I’ve been very happy with my 23/2 - 50/2 combination (but usually pack the 14/2.8, too.) I have a 27, but for me it’s not as nice of a fit in a multilens system and is usually used alone.

The 27 is under appreciated because we have to use a thumb wheel for manual aperture settings.

Even though I have the 35/2 I like the 27 and use it often.
