Do you see anything?

I don't see a shot from the kit lens and one from the AI lens at the same aperture to make any comparison

The 28mm 2.8 looks far from great wide open at that distance. Maybe it excels at closer or longer range? Maybe it's significantly better stopped down a click or two?

Isn't the 28mm 2.8 AIS supposed to be superior to the earlier lens?
