I find a .72 pretty much useless for working with the 28 - remember that
I wear glasses. The .58 is THE body for the 28 - it gives you a bit of
air around the frame lines; not much, but just a bit - it's pretty
similar to the 35 in the .72. And the 35 on the .58 is a joy, because
there is some real space around the 35 mm framelines, giving you a much
better idea of what's in and what's out.....The .72 is the idea body for
any lens below 50 mm - and is actually pretty good for a 50.

Please pardon my ignorance, but what do the
28mm frame lines in a .58 viewfinder look like ?
On a .72, the 28mm farme already fills the viewfinder.
Or perhaps a .58 viewfinder does not have
28mm frame lines ?
