    I'm leaving next week on an extended trip and needed something a little wider than I had. Found a Minolta 24mm MD W.Rokkor-X 1:2.8. It seems to OK. When camera held level it looks pretty good. I'm not knowledgeable enough to review this lens but it is reasonably sharp even in corners. Here is a few samples.

    Also these were taken in very harsh lighting.

    Does indeed look like a keeper! My copy has some definite field curvature - might want to watch out for that - but in the center it gets very sharp indeed.
