What would YOU do -- 25mm or 28mm

Got the XE1 pre-ordered. I know I'm buying the 18 f/2 and 35 f/1.4 lenses.

I want something in between. Since I also shoot with an M8 and Zeiss Ikon (film), I figured I'd buy an M lens that I can use on all three.

So it's either the 25mm f/4 or the 28mm f/2 (or f/1.9 if I can find one).

25mm f/4 pros are that it's small and is probably closer to the focal length I want (37.5mm effective focal length). It's also the cheaper of the two.

28mm f/2 is faster and allows more DOF control, which I usually prefer. But it's effective focal length (42mm) is going to be even closer to the 35mm f/1.4 (52.5mm).

What would you do? Feel free to elaborate?
