Upload & Sell: On
I'm thinking about adding the 28/2.8 series E as well, but it gets a bad write up most of the time. Is it really that bad? Has anyone had any experience with it?
On Fx, it gets soft at the corners, but it is quite nice on Dx. I would say that it is a little under rated because of its mix of plastic/metal in its construction. Optically, it is pretty nice. I usually set it to f/5.6 and leave it there. f/5.6-f/8 is the sweet spot for sharpness.

A few notables. Also, this lens renders quite nice, don't have to do much processing with it. Most shots on my Flickr page don't have a lot of processing with this lens.

And a shot mimicking the shot that brought me to this thread ala Curtis.
