    28mm f/2 is a stunner. Don't look anything else.

    Just got one in pristine condition, non-AI, for $130. With the hood. And a filter. Currently on the way to John White for conversion. Me happy.

    Thanks Everybody!
    Yesterday I settled for the 28mm f/2 AI! Don't think I payed cheap for it but I'm feeling pretty confidant in my purchase and can't wait for it to arrive.. (it's in the mail). It should be arriving with my new scanner.. so, hopefully I'll be shooting and scanning my prints and slide with it soon! Thanks alot for all your input! It's was really helpful.

    I love my 24mm F2, f8 and set to infinity, you'll have everything sharp from 5ft and out. easily hand holdable at 1/20 sec. focus from up to 1ft away. its a sweet lens to use

    I picked up a nice 24mm 2.8 here last year. Turned out to be just a bit too wide for me. I was going to post it in the classifieds here but there were a few up already. It is a great lens but I'm just not using it that much - too much medium format/rangefinder shooting recently.

    The 28mm F2 is the one to go for (as you have) and you will be well pleased with it. Low distortion and they have CFC, definitely one of the very best 28's around!

    Used to have the 28/2 and it was a nice lens. Initially I thought it was soft at the corners but it turned out the culprit was my enlarging lens. I love wide angles and I now have the 24/2.8 and the rather nice 18/3.5, I also have the 16 fisheye which I think is my favourite wide.

    I like 20mm, 21mm and 24mm lenses, but they have a very limited usefulness compared to the 28mm lens. I would caution anyone buy one of those without trying one out first.

    I never bought anything wider for two reasons:
    1. cost
    2. I do not like taking photographs that have the front of my shoes showing in the bottom of the photograph!
