The 24 Elmarit is a great lens I was very fond of. The small problem is that it is bulky with the front lens shade. I had to chance of acquiring an excellent copy of Summilux 24 and sold the Elmarit in a trade to acquire a monochrom. But It is a lens that has its own style and great results. The rest is the photographer's ability.

I have one and it’s my favourite lens. 

I have one, too, and it's a great lens. At a 1000 USD, it seems a bargain to me (they are usually more expensive).

The OP owns a 28 Summilux, so I presume that size is not a problem. Besides, the 24/2.8 Elmarit is quite a bit more compact than any of the Summilux 21, 24 and 28 lenses.

Cheers, Andy

Andy, This is not my experience. It is true that the Lux is longer but Elmarit was larger and was less ergonomic I found in terms of balancing. The Lux balances very well  on my Monochrom 246. But all of this is personal preferences and I believe this is what OP was asking. I am not recommending him to buy rather a Lux though. Elmarit is optically great if he is fine with it.

At 1000 USD it is a bargain, i have a keen interest in that lens and the cheapest one I've seen so far is €1650,-

Seems a lot next to the 28 Summilux. There might be situations where you need both. Just not many I can think of. 21 mm or wider probably makes a better addition if you need wider. A lot will come back to what you are trying to achieve. Shooting indoors? 28mm Summilux is better suited. Landscapes? A more compact 21 or 24 mm Elmar would be better suited (although the 28 mm will do pretty well as the lens you already own). Street photography? Probably covered by the 35 or 28 mm you already have.

What does the 24 mm 2.8 achieve that your current lenses do not? Width? I know they're different but you're not getting much more than 28 mm. Speed? It's slower than your 28 mm. Size? There are smaller alternatives available. For those reasons I don't see the point. Sure $1000 might be a good price but so what? I'd still prefer it in my wallet. That said, you won't have to look far to find other people to support your decision to buy, as you would no doubt like to. Did you ever ask these questions before and not buy the lens afterwards?

I'm very happy with mine.  Fantastic on f4/f5.6 - ok on f2.8. There is something magical about the pictures.  Very different from eg the new 35 f2.  I use it more than my 35mm on both my M D and M9
