    I have nothing against the PC-Nikkor - in fact I would love to own one. Sometimes I think I should sell everything, including my digital stuff, and get an F2, a 35mm f/2.8 PC-Nikkor and a 105mm f/2.8 Micro-Nikkor. I could probably do everything I'm really interested in with those two lenses... OK, I guess I need the 24mm f/2.8 also.

    My reason for not suggesting the 35mm PC is just that it's about four times more expensive than the non-PC 35mm f/2.8. I was trying to meet the OP's requirement that the lens be inexpensive.

    I agree that the Tamron 24mm f2.5 is a really nice lens. You might even find one for well under $50.

    Same here--28 seems like a good compromise when I want to go wide.

    Beats the alternative, though!
