I wish Nikon made a small compact 23/2 like my Fuji X100s has.

Shot at ISO 200, 1/60 and f2

Nice shot Ron.

If I were shooting FX, not a issue, but with DX that 28mm becomes 42mm equivalent, and just too "normal". When I did more street shooting years ago with my old Contax G2s, I used 28mm and 35mm most frequently and almost never used the 45mm.

Houston, as little as possible.
There is definitely a problem with DX with there being no such thing as a fast true wide angle prime for the F mount. You could try a 20 mm AF-D f/2.8, but that needs one of the DX bodies with screw drive. I use that 20 on FX and like it because it is much more portable than the f/2.8 wide angle zooms.

I've still got my old 20/4 AIS, but it's not the same as the Fuji 23/2 for isolation (nor do I think as good). On the other hand I don't have to worry about vignetting with the 20mm on DX like it did on FX and set at f5.6-f8, it's almost like auto-focus...
