I used to have the 28-70 but sold after a it few weeks. For me it was 
not up to the standards I'm used to with Leica. Not very sharp wide open 
and too much distortion on the wide end.
I now have the 35-70/4 which is very good in my opinion. It also has a 
modest macro capabiltity which makes it my standard lens.
