GAH! I'm driving myself mad.
What to do? What to do?
I have the 100/2 MP, and now I want something wider. The 21/2.8 is off the list (for now - too expensive), as I'd love this next lens mostly for documentary (weddings)/street photography, and some environmental/landscape secondarily.
Do I get the 25/2 ZF.2 or the 28/2 ZF.2? I want a fast aperture, especially when I photograph people up close.

Craig - you can browse images by particular lens on the www.zeissimages.com web site. Click on Photos and then Lens Browser in the drop-down menu. From there, you can select a particular lens and view images that people have posted with that lens. Images are posted by all kinds of photographers, so there will be a range of image types. The guy who runs the site does a lot of street photography, although I don't know offhand if he uses the two lenses that you are considering.
In looking back through a lot of my images, my 25mm f/2.8 ZF has been used enough that I just bought the ZF.2 version while on sale. Although I don't do a lot of street photography, I can tell you that the 25mm renders beautifully and captures fine detail very well.
Edit: I reread your comment and see that you are considering the 25mm f/2, not the f/2.8 that I have. Supposedly, the f/2 is a little better than the f/2.8. It will be interesting to hear what you decide.
