Yep and I will add that other Canon f2.8s are great too. My 28/2.8 matches my ZM 25/2.8 in corner sharpness at f2.8. Stopped down, the 28/2.8 is super critically sharp edge to edge with screaming contrast. For about $20-40, the 28/2.8 is a great deal.

So that's the catch for me. My $20 160 gram 28/2.8 is so "good enough" and so close to 24mm--It's hard for me to rationalize paying $400 for the 24/2. Also, the 24/2.8 has the focus play issue and 28/2.8 does not. The 24/2.8 is considerably heavier and more expensive too.
