I have a 25mm CV Skopar LTM and a 24 2.8 M  asperical I never landed a 28.
However these lenses I have are so well corrected that I find myself feeling
like I'm needed one.

In my nikon use its not a different angle I'm looking for when I'm reaching
for my 28 its better correction than I'm getting from my 24.

With Leica I can use my 21 and 24 EImarit Aspherics and crop.
In digital I think we are not afraid of cropping like what went on with
