All the time! I mostly use a fifty because the kit lens is too slow! but too often i find myself with my back against the wall and not being able to frame a subject. the 35/2 would probably be nice, but still not be wide enough sometimes. Im gonna pick it up on monday!Do you have a specific need for it? Can you immediately pinpoint situations where you would use it or situations in the past where you said, "gee, I wish I had a wider lens!" That's a good deal for this lens, so I'd probably spring for it....
What bad reviews did you see about this lens? Galen Rowell loved this lens and it's one of this fav'd lenses.My local store has one for sale for $199 without a box (they lost it). Should I ignore the not so hot reviews this lens has (with a d200) and grab it?
I was referring to phtotzone's review and another that I can't seem to remember where I saw it that said basicly the same:What bad reviews did you see about this lens? Galen Rowell loved this lens and it's one of this fav'd lenses.
Bjorn's review for the AiS version (same optics as the AF) also mentions CA:The Nikkor AF 24mm f/2.8D didn't really convince during the tests
