    I respect your personal experience, but all evidence (including many others' experience, and my own) suggest that they perform on par with each other. The OM 24/2.0 cost almost double what the 24/2.8 did, and uses a much more advanced optical design - there is no way it's going to actually underperform the 24/2.8.

    Actually there are many cases of expensive faster lenses underperforming slower and simpler lenses at equal apertures (it's really the usual behaviour, with notable exceptions of course).

    Though faster lenses always do outperform slower ones at the apertures the slower ones don't have...

    I had both the 24mm 2,0 and 2,8 and really there is not a whole lot of difference IQ wise. The 2.0 is a little bigger and has a sliding hood (I believe), but if you don't need 2.0, the 2.8 is a bit cheaper and smaller! I ended up selling 2.8 when i picked up the Tokina 17mm 3.5 RMC lens
