Is this a gas attack?
I have a 21mm, 35mm, 50mm and 90mm lens with my Leica M kit. I am debating the issue of getting a 28mm to plug the gap between the 21 and the 35.
But I'm wondering if the gap needs to be bridged.
Anyone here use a 28mm and a 35mm or are they too much of a muchness to make it necessary to have both?
It's a gap. I have 21, 28, 35, 50, 55, 80, 90 and 135mm lenses in LTM, and am considering a 15mm...

isn't it kind of a "one step back" sort of thing? I would say yes to the question posed by the OP
When I am using a 35mm camera I prefer 21mm, 28mm, 50mm to using a 35mm lens. I have always found the 35mm is to close to the 50mm for my tastes.
That is why I like the 50mm, 80mm, 150mm and 250mm lenses for the Hasselblad rather thand using the 60mm lens.
Warning!! Handling a Hasselblad can be harmful to your financial well being!
Nothing beats a great piece of glass!
I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.
Plug the gap!
I personally don't like the 35 but the 21 & 28 both work for me.

In my opinion, it depends on the design of the 28 mm that you are considering.

If it's the new style, then you maybe bored with the 28 mm's look.
I might suggest considering a 25 mm lens.
I didn't even know there was a 25!
Oh boy this is tough.
There is a difference between the 28mm & 35mm. Also consider the 135mm. It is extremely sharp.
I would say NO GAS, just wise. The gap between 21 and 35 is rather large, so a 28mm is in place.
After that you might be thinking of a 24mm, as a couple of mm in the wide makes a lot of diference.
E.I. a 14-28mm zoom (non-Leica) has 14, 18, 21, 24 and 28mm lenses in itself.
Those 14mm on a 100-200mm zoom would be nothing to speak of.
