    I'll second the Kiron 28mm f/2; I have one for my MD Minolta system and it's quite good.

    I think it comes down to which FL you find preferable. A 35mm is more a normal lens to me, and I never quite took to a 24mm for some reason. But I do like the 28mm fov, although I can't afford the F2 model which from what I hear is a much better lens then the F2.8.

    The Tamron 19-35mm is an exceptionally good cheap ultrawide if you can get your hands on one. I've had two of them and had excellent luck.

    Ultrawide, eh? That's extremely tempting. What size filter would it take? 77mm?

    I agree for ultrawide zoom this Tamron is a decent performer. Open wide there is noticeable light fall off but most people can live with that.

    oh and filter size is 77mm.

    I find that 24mm is pretty hard to control handheld if you care about relatively sane backgrounds of buildings and such on your street shots. The lines get pretty seriously weird if you are not pretty level. For me 28mm is as wide as I want to go handheld. I have the 28mm AI-S and it is fabulous... but it is manual focus, if that matters to you. I previously had the 35mm f/2D and found it great in the middle but slightly soft in the corners on full frame. If you are mainly shooting things that show up in the 70 percent middle area of the frame, it is a totally fabulous lens. Has a very good look to it in b&w especially, unlike the very bland 50mm f/1.8D (which I still have), which looks very ordinary, but sharp.

    You are better off with an AF Nikkor on the F5, they can be modified to take the Ais lenses, but it's just as easy to get a newer one. The 28 2.8 or 35 F2 should be in your budget, and are both fine lenses.

    the F5 needs no modification for AIS lenses. Non-ai (original nikkors from the 50's to late 70's) need the mount to be modified either on the lens or on the F5 camera body.
