For a slightly wider view I'm wondering, ignoring focus method, how the 24/2.8 AiS and 24/2.8 AF-D, and 28/2.8 AiS compare strictly on an optical basis?
Best of the season to one and all,
My answer is based mostly on what I've read about these respective lenses, though I own the 28 f/2.8 ais and briefly owned the 24 f/2.8 af-d.
The 28 f/2.8 ais is a step up from either of the other two. It is generally considered one of the better lenses Nikon ever made. The two 24s are, if I'm not mistaken, almost identical optically and while good, neither is great. I was mostly unimpressed with the 24mm when I owned it.
