I had a Nikon 28mm f2 (AiS, of course) but sold it before I went FF. Wish I still had that to use with my D700.

Yep, that 28/F2 is a jewel...

The AIS may be. I have the old "N" version from the early '70s, AI converted in amazing condition, and I like it, but don't love it. Prefer the Voigtlander 28 f2.8 for everything but the extreme edges, where it's a bit soft. But that's rarely an issue for me. And, for f2, of course, but I don't love f2 on the old Nikkor either...
