This new AFS Nikkor 28mm f1.8 is the standard DX lens I have been waiting for all along. Not needing the 1.4 speed and COST for digital DX, anything in the f2 range would be fine. At 1/3 the cost of the AFS 24mm, and most likely the same IQ, this 28mm is perfect. The problem with the AFS 35 f1.8 was that it had no focus scale, and was just a bit too long for my wider "standard" preference equivalent to 35 ~ 40 mm, and seemed a bit too cheaply made, not as well corrected as Nikon's best lenses.

So I have high hopes for this new 28mm, as a top quality prime standard lens on my D7000.
