Re: Nikon AI-s lenses - quality tests

Thanks much.

Lenstip confirms that I did a good choice buying the 28mm f2 AI-s. It gives a five to the 24mm f2.8, which I'd like to considere now. And it gives five to the 35 f1.4, which I planned to buy.

The only surprise to me is the 20mm f2.8, it gets 4. According to Ken Rockwell's tests it is the best of the pack: http://www.kenrockwell.com/tech/comparisons/2010-09-22-20mm/index.htm (ok, this test is only about sharpness).

Would you buy this lens for landscape photography (if you do not mind MF and want a prime lense with excellent performance)?

I could also consider the Zeiss 21mm but the price is intimidating.

P.S.: Stephen, thanks for the link to photozone. Do you have the pages with the test diagrams (sharpness etc.)?
