Sharpest 24mm prime to go on a D610
9 months ago

First off, let me say I never shoot primes.  Sorry, I'm a short zoom kind of guy.  But I do shoot wide mostly.  Also I shoot with a D5200 at the moment but am getting a D610 in the near future.

I would love to read that the 24-85 VR lens that comes bundled with the D610 is a great sharp lens corner to corner/edge to edge but I've not read that.  Center sharp, yeah.

So my question is:  of all the autofocus lenses out there (vintage or not, Nikon or not) which is the sharpest AFFORDABLE 24mm prime I can get.  I'm not asking for the best of the best at any price, just something I can mount that will be better than the 24-85 VR I mentioned.

It also doesn't have to be real fast.  I'm not going for DOF.  f/2.8 is plenty fast, it could even be slower than that.  If the consensus was a $50 lens I could get used off of ebay that would be just grand!  Thanks.
