Re: I had this same issue and opted for the 28mm 1.8

I've debated getting this lens.  How far do you have to stop down the 28 f1.8 to get sharp pictures?  if you have to go beyond f2.2 -- then as Carl said - the f2.8 zoom .

If you are taking photos of test charts, and the viewing at 100%, you will be unhappy.

If you take photos of normal subjects, and view them at reasonable print sizes, it is sharp at all apertures. I use mine wide open on my 60D all the time.
