though using the sigma 30 occasionally find myself wishing I had a 28 or even a little wider, NOT a 35.

Amen! Whatever happened to 28mm lenses? Are they out of fashion? It's a shame that my 28mm FD is really not good (maybe a bad copy) but it fitted my NEX so well and was so versatile.

Surprised to hear that - the FDn (all-black, bayonet, not earlier breech lock) f2.8 version? Mine is pretty sharp I think - tweaked JPGs from original NEX-5:



I used to pair the 28/2.8 with a FDn 50/1.4 or Olympus 50/1.8 for extra speed/length/bokeh, but I have more recently found that 35mm is my preferred focal length, and the FDn 35/2 is fast replacing both of them as the perfect all-rounder:
