Leica Summaron-M 28mm or Elmarit. 2.8 or 5.6

Here are the lenses.

Leica Elmarit-M 28mm f/2.8 ASPH. Lens is the perfect lens all around. Small, sharp and given really great reviews.

Leica Summaron-M 28mm f/5.6 Lens. Tiny, over priced lens with really great reviews.

Not really sure why the reviews are so good for it. It's slow and the reviewers seem to ignore the IQ.

All of that said, I really want that Summaron 5.6. It's a street lens and the size is a huge sale for me.

What do you think, am I making a huge mistake?

I am a hobbyist and bought the 50mm summarit 2.5 for the small size and focus tab.
