I think you are going to want a longer lens, not a shorter one.

Okay, now this is the point where I start to get confused. I won't get wider coverage from a wider angle in macro-land? I know the focusing distances change.

What is the greatest distance from slide to sensor that you can get? What is the smallest ? (Never mind where the lens is for now).

Smallest distance from slide to sensor is ~100-120mm, assuming a lens that isn't too big that will fit inside the duplicator. The longest distance is around 220mm, give or take a few. (I'm measuring in inches, to knock off 10-20mm to be safe.)

Do the Leitz lenses that you have all use the same size filters ? - and therefore the same reversing ring ?

The Summicron 35 and 50 take 39mm filters, as does my old 90/f2.8. The 21 is a different size, but it's too wide to use.
