A great wide angle lens that is sharp across its aperture range, with excellent color quality and contrast. The lens is sturdy with very smooth focus. The only downside really is that the front element is rather bulbous and protruding, making it vulnerable to lens flare. So a lens hood is a must for shooting into the sun.
The sleeper of sleepers, an excellent 28. I got mine for $25 bucks. With the 28 f2, you may get less barrel distortion and certainly a brighter viewfinder picture, but you won't get better resolution. The new FD is reputed to have noticeable barrel distortion, throwing the choice to the 28 f 2.8 SC.
