    A Nikkor is what you need. Look around and you are bound one in exellent condition for not much more than an off-brand

    Another vote for the Nikkor 28 2.8 Ai(S). Just can't go wrong with it.

    Yes, it is. I have one and it is simply fantastic. I also have the 24 mm. f/2.8 which I use more than I do the 28 simply because I prefer the wider angle. The difference in image quality, which favors the 28, is not great when making enlargements up to about 10x.

    A very good economy 28 is the Vivitar 28/2.5 Fixed Mount. The 28/1.9 Vivitar Series 1 is also nice and very well built. Vivitar's last 28/2 (Ser. # 28XXX...) is sharp, has close focusing and is not very expensive. The 28/2.8 AIS is a very expensive lens. For the same money or less a 28/2 would serve you at least as well. These are floating element designs which are supposed to have better image quality at the closer focusing distances. I have two 28/3.5 AI lenses and find then to be excellent. If I need to shoot in the close range I'll use a 55/3.5 or 55/2.8 Micro Nikkor. Either of these is much better in the close range than any 28.
