28 is much more common focal length. Plus small size. Plus, it has some usable image "quality".
Trabant has none of it. It is as "usable" as MS Optics 50 1.1.
And why do you think it is forgotten? It just irrelevant for many of us. New Leica lenses are priced for niche market, not for common photographers.
Yet, lenses like in this thread are for the most of us. Simply because of the price.
