The same is applicable to a river or see - I have to jump into the river
Well, kinda true ... but you'll have the same issue on any camera with fixed focal length. And both 28mm and 35mm are wide angle - not even slightly suitable for taking detailed pictures of buildings. You need a decent focal length for that.

Thats why I like my SLR with lenses ranging from 35 through to 450mm.
