'Urban Legend" although I have never heard this story.
I purchased one of the first 24mm f2.8 Nikkors on the market for both reportage and weddings.
Back then it almost instantly became one of the 'must have' lenses for a newspaper photographer. Excellent wide open for reproduction on newsprint, with f2.8 for TRI-X, I took sbout 60% of my shots with this lens. A normal 50mm lens was not used much, at least for me.
For weddings with flash, it was and still is great to capture group portraits.-Dick
