The 28/2.8 AF-D is a completely different optical formula.

(I love chewin' the rag about Nikkors.)
You're right, I didn't know the AF and AF-D had different optics. I have a D200 also; I got the 28mm because I was trying to find a normal lens that wasn't the 35mm f/1.8G. I was going to try the 35mm f/2D also, but before I could, I gave up on digital for my personal work.
