Hello! At this moment and I'm deeply torn between these lenses and I have totally no idea which one to choose. They are all rather at the same price:

Canon FD 28mm 2.8

Minolta MD 28m 2.8

Sigma Mini-Wide II 28mm 2.8

There are many topics about these lenses, but none of them compares them directly. Is there anyone who has experience with them? I've heard that Canon isn't that sharp as the rest wide open; also I've not heard anything bad about Minolta; I really liked the pictures taken with Sigma, but the flare seems to be a big problem, is it?

Thanks for the help!

I have two 28mm lenses, a Canon FDn 28mm f2,8 and a Konica Hexanon AR 28mm f3.5. Of the two, I prefer the Konica lens for overall IQ and build quality.
