A 28mm for the Df:

Much of the Df's charm comes from the fact that the camera is reminiscent of my all-time favorite, the Contax G2.

Similar handling, similar feel, similar button/dial layout and design. Add the stellar Zeiss glass that came with the Contax.

Being a 28mm shooter, I'd be interested in for your advice on which 28mm you'd recommend.

I've shot the Nikkor F1.8 with the Df. Seems alright, but don't like the plastic feel too much. Seems to be an OK performer, but the optics offer neither the three-dimensional look I'm used to from Zeiss glass nor is it an especially pleasing lens tow work with.

Then there is the Zeiss Distagon F2. Outstanding build quality, manual focus, big...

I'd be interested in which one you opt(ed) for and why.

Or you recommend a third contender?
