    35mm is more tight. I usually prefer such a composition.

    Holga 120GFN: Amazingly simple yet it produces outstanding negatives to print.

    redundancy is good, right? i thought i would check before i post...

    having used pretty much every nikon wide at one time or another, the only one i have kept 25 years down the road is the 28/2 AIS - no competition. i know, you said 2.8, but if you're considering 35/1.4, you can afford the 2 easily

    none of the 35s ever clicked with me, either because of the field of view (a personal thing) or because of the image quality (a less personal thing). i'd tend to agree that the 35/2 is the nicest of the bunch, but even that, nothing to write home about

    I'd have to agree, but need to mention that I could get by with a 35mm lens forever and be pretty much OK with it. If I had to pick just one lens...the 1.4 max aperture is pretty sweet, too.

    I have the 28 2.8 AIs and the 35 2.8 Ai. They are both tack sharp but I prefer the 28mm for landscapes. The 35 is good for street shooting and as a general walkaround prime.

    The 28 is nice though if you are doing landscapes or sky scenes. Anything where you need to go wide.

    I'd get the 28 2.8 and the 35 f2, the f2 is legendary status with the 105 f2.5

    I'd agree that the 35mm 2.0 is the best of the Nikon 35s, but legendary??!!???

    Considering your other lenses, I'd go with the 28mm or something a little wider.
