Nikkor AF-S 28/1.8

Just right for D7100 - lightweight enough and resolves 24 MP. Speedy autofocus.

With 1.3x crop you have 42 and 58 mm equivalent.

Do you think this lens is worth the premium you pay over the 35 1.8 DX?  I know I would prefer the 28 focal length but not sure it is worth the price difference.

definitely better rendition, better contra-light (Neveg actually go bad), faster AF, brilliant close-ups. And 28 much better than 35 on DX. It is safe to use only this lens - you'll got photograph in any condition.

And Nikon claims weather protection for this lens.

You pay for what you get.
