A bit of a dilemma. I shoot a silver M8 with 24mm 2.8, 35mm 2.0 and 50mm 1.4 lenses.....
I bought the 24mm 2.8 in chrome as I couldn't find the 28mm 2.0 in chrome and have been very happy with the rendering and, due to the crop factor, it's acting as a 31mm.
In the next year, I intend to upgrade to an M9/M10 and would like to move to the 28mm length, as the 24mm will be too wide for me.
I have the choice between a 28mm Summicron chrome which I've found used (expensive) or a 28mm Elmarit silver from the "white edition" (expensive, but less so), as an alternative to my 24mm 2.8. I would love the extra stop as sometimes I have issues with the speed of the 24mm, but this may frankly be solved by the next M's better high ISO.
Any advice? Should I just forget it and stick with the 24mm, even though it's a bit too wide on the M9 viewfinder? Is the 28mm much nicer to compose with on the M9?
Thanks for your advice.
