We'll have 4 yr 7 month age gap between ours. I had wanted a 3 year gap but this is how it turned out.
DS is so independent now and super excited about his sibling to-be. It's been nice to have a break from all the baby stuff I feel more energised to tackle it all again! I couldn't have coped with a narrow age gap.
There is 4.5 years between my little brother and I and I remember we played together a lot.

I've got 4y8m between my two. I've liked the age gap so far (DS is 8, DD is 4). Right now they're kind of at different stages with play, but they do get along. DS is much more mature and is very tolerant of DD (4 year olds can be difficult at times), so they don't fight like siblings close in age do. There's a bit of the 'annoying little sister' factor, but DS is generally just so patient and loving with her.
DD is the baby of our blended family (5 kids between me and DP, aged 4, 8, 8, 12 & 14), and DD gets along well with all of them.
I also liked that DS was so independent when DD was born. It suited my nature much better.

We have 5 years between #2 & #3 and it was the best, #2 was old enough to amuse herself when I was feeding, she was at kinder so I got that time to rest with baby, I really loved it.
They are now 6 and 11.

There's a 4.5 year gap between my two and at the moment its not working so well for us. The older one has well and truly outgrown the younger and whilst he adores her, she wants nothing to do with him 99% of the time and it breaks my heart.
On the positive side, when my second was born his older sister was able to play by herself and had some independence, and so I didn't have two in nappies, two not sleeping etc.
