As a wide angle the 28mm is a good lens. It is wide enough for most situations but is devoid of any distortion - at least to my eye. I don't have one but from what I have learned the 24mm in some very tight spaces can fit the bill better but you do get the start of distortion. However this tends to be only visible with the likes of tall door frames or other perfect rectangles and most looking at a shot with a 24 might not even notice it.

One of the other great things is that a 28mm on a 35mm camera and at f11 or even f8 becomes a virtual point and shoot due to the great DoF. Handy at times to have this range

I am amazed by the reviews of early film camera lenses, even today Canon, Pentax, Nikkor, Minolta lenses receive good reviews often saying they outsine their modern ones.

What I am not used to is the weight, when you walk round as I do, (and happily) with a D4s and 14-24, D810 and 70-200 f2.8 all day, then go out with THIS, Nikkormat and lens the almost non existent weight makes you laugh.
