From ePhotozine Verdict :
There is something quite liberating about travelling light with just one lens and there can be no finer choice than a classic focal length such as this 23mm. It soon becomes apparent why 35mm lenses were so well regarded on 35mm cameras, and certainly, the 23mm recaptures this versatility in terms of its APS-C crop format field of view. For those who are also concerned about the effect of the smaller format, the faster f/1.4 aperture will help make up for the increased depth of field and resultant difficulty in throwing backgrounds out of focus. Ultimately though, these sorts of comparisons are only approximate guidelines and the APS-C format has a look and strengths all of its own.
In summary, a beautiful lens that delivers the goods with style.
