24mm, 28mm, 30mm or 35mm for cheap street photography?

I am looking for a small and unobtrusive lens for my new A55 for some (pseudo reporter) street photography. I have the 16-80mm as my regular everyday lens, but it's a little too big for the intended purpose and the 50mm is a little too narrow IMO.

Has anyone compared the 24mm 2.8, 28mm 2.8, 30mm 1.8 and 35mm 2.8? I tend to prefer the faster 35mm, but I am not sure yet. If anyone has some input (IQ, usefulness of focal length, experience with street photography etc.), I would appreciate it!
