I just got one of these 28/3.5s, and I'm utterly happy with it. If you don't need the light gathering and/or close focus capability of the faster lenses, the 3.5 is the way to go. It's small and light, too, giving perfect balance on a plain prism F, F2, or Nikkormat. Nearly the same size and weight as the 50/2 and 35/2.8.
