I must say I personally disagree with this very strongly. The 35 and the 28
are for me radically different lenses. I also own a 25, which is another
thing too. Anyway, my point is that I quite often wander about with the 28
on one camera and a 35 on the other. It sounds stupid but often (especially
on the streets) these are the two lenses I want, and I use them
differently... the 28 as a true wide-angle, the 35 as a somewhat wide normal
lens. The 28 encourages you (well, me, anyway) to compose from the edges,
the 35 from the centre. The results are quite different.
