On the street: 21 vs 35 mm

In my street photography, I basically have two lenses to choose from: the DA 21mm Limited and the DA 35mm Limited. A lot of people seems to think that the main difference between a 21mm lens and a 35mm lens is that you get a longer reach with the 35mm, and therefore don´t need to…
