what might be a better alternative at sensible price? The 24mm f2.8??

I have one of those. It was terrible on film and it's terrible on DX. Some people say they can stand it on FX by correcting the chromatic aberration in RAW but the thing still isn't sharp until you stop it down to f/5.6 or so.

I used a Sigma 24mm f1.8 for a while. I was happy with that as long as I didn't point to toward the sun too much. IQ was excellent and it was a useful 'macro' lens (not 1:1 like a 'prpoper' macro but very useful close-up).
