Subject: [Leica] 21, 24, or 28?

Hi Luggers:
I've owned my M6TTL now for about eight months and am delighted with the
camera.  I use a 50mm Summilux and am considering a second lens which
will either be a 21, 24, or 28mm.  I enjoy architectural photography and
on a recent trip to Paris took about fifteen rolls of bw prints, but I
am not completely pleased with the ability of the 50mm lens to
photograph buildings, interiors, and landscapes with expansive
foregrounds. What should I consider in choosing between these three
lenses?  In using the frame switch on the M6, I can see the framelines
for a 28mm exposure and did this alot when overseas.  Coming back home,
I convinced myself that the 28mm was the way to go...until reading and
learning more about the other two.  Right now, I think I would prefer
the 28mm because the brightline viewfinder frames are visible in the
camera and I wouldn't need the external viewfinder.  Any thoughts from
the group will be greatly appreicated.
