I like going really close in a Winogrand style, and even 35mm is a bit long and I'm looking at getting a 28mm, or possibly a 24mm.

What do you like taking?
Thanks for posting those images really appreciated
Street is the direction I want to take my photography, I am a huge B&W fan always have been; it just does something to an image for me. I have looked at your gallery quite a few times and I really like your work will look forward to seeing what you capture with the 24/28mm.

New lens arrived and it is a good example... very sharp and very well made; it makes the 17mm look very bad must of been a Friday afternoon Job

I took a similar view and got a 14-140 Lumix lens as a general travel/everyday lens and I've loved the flexibility it provides so much I've stuck with it. Only got the 17mm f1.8 for inside museum type shots in low light.
All I can say is wow what a great lens you must get one at some point worth every penny
