Jimmy, welcome! I'm still debating (with myself) about getting the 28mm f/2.8 AIS. I have a nice old 28mm f/3.5 HC AI'd that I like, but I see so many great photos from the AIS version posted here.
Peter, nice to have you back. I hope you feel better soon - back pain can be really debilitating, I know from experience. I look forward to seeing some pictures from your trip.
Well, you will have to stop debating with yourself over the 28mmf2.8ais. There is no cure for this, but there is a remedy.
Talking of HC lenses, I have an old 50mmf2 HC AI'd which I got with my first Nikon F2, both of which I have kept until now. This old 50mm lens is also brilliantly sharp. Here's a shot taken with this 50mmf2HC AI'd:
