28mm f1.8 Sample variations

The 50 & 85 are solid choices.

The 28mm is a bit more problematic due to sample variation.  It has received mixed reviews.

The 28mm f/2.8 AI-S is a very good lens, but it is manual focus.

If you are looking to extract the most out of the D800 and perhaps the D600, then you might look at Samyang, or better yet, Zeiss if you are well heeled.  Both are manual focus lenses, but optically perform very, very well.

I just ordered 28mm F1.8 for using with my new D600. Could anyone please let me know what should be looking for regarding the known issues?
