Unfortunately, the 24F2.8D isn't very sharp wide open.    (In my experience, it's not particularly good in any way).

24mm on DX also isn't wide at all.    You'd be better off with most of the 18-xxx consumer zooms, but if you want 2.8 or faster, keep looking.

I have test shots of my 24F2.8 D if you need convincing that it's not all that great, but they are on a D700, and of course it stresses the corners a lot more than a DX camera.

There just aren't a lot of choices in a wide DX prime.    I do like my 10.5 F2.8 fisheye, but it's a fisheye...
