AIS 28mm/2 is one of my most used lenses on D300/D200, so I can't figure out why 28mm/1.8 should be overkill. I mean if you want 28mm with bigger aperture than f/2.8.

But if you want longer or shorter focal length, then you have to look for another lens

Same here! In addition I have the AI'd 28/2 and I have even seriously considered the 28 PC because I prefer a large front element. I always thought if I have to limit myself to one lens it will naturally be the 28mm. It such a focal length usuall do wll in museums as well.

I have great expectation for the 28/1.8. But given the Nikon track record of overcharging Australians, I'll buy it abroad when I have a chance.
