Thanks again to everyone for the comments.

A good friend (who's now a Sony ambassador in Belgium) has lent me his 35 1.4 for a couple of weeks at least, as he's off to Korea with other lenses. It's large for a street lens but at least I'll have a chance to work more with the focal length and see if I like it. Expect more photos here.

It's good that you're working with the 35mm for now. If you have any second thoughts regarding the 28mm (my preferred focal length for street), see if you can get in close enough to subjects that your images start to look squeezed, or crammed, at 35mm.

If you're happy at that distance, only then should you start thinking about a 28mm. The 35mm lens will tell you when it's time to "graduate".
