This is a followup to another thread I recently started. I picked up a mint condition 24mm f/2 AI-S and went out shooting this afternoon to give it a workout. I am very impressed and happy as a clam. This thing rocks. I know this will sound funny to some people but my keeper rate (sharpness and focus) was 100%. My kit, as it stands now, doesn't give me that with my AF lenses. I'm blown away. Color, saturation, IQ, sharpness, detail... all excellent. This is a sampling of the images I just shot out at a local marina and park. Most were shot at f/5.6 or f/8 which is where the sweet spot seems to be and I just couldn't be happier. I've included some 100% crops on some of the images. These have a small amount of in-camera sharpening in the Standard picture control setting but no additional sharpening or post processing other than some quick crops.
