GR III or GR IIIx - help me!

Ever since I got the GR III I've been bemoaning the 28mm lens, hoping for something more narrow. Almost two years later, I now have the option of getting the GR IIIx and I'm ready to pull the trigger but I'm having sudden second thoughts and doubting myself.

Over these two years I've owned only the GR III and learned to deal with the 28mm, even like it. I now mainly shoot my 6month old, though, as I don't get the chance to go out all that much.

I can and will only own one of the two cameras. Am I crazy to be thinking that maybe 28mm isn't that bad after all? I've just been trying the digital crop and after spending so long with the 28mm they just feel so tight!

A friend with the fuji 27mm says it'll take me a week to get used to 40mm, but I would appreciate your opinions as well.
