I finally sold the last of my my Fuji gear and have a little left over to pick up a lens for myself. One option is to give the much loved OM 24/2.8 another try. I know people swear by that lens and say that it is the best thing since sliced bread but I have had two and I am not sure if it was me or the lens(es) but neither of them impressed me all that much (but I am willing to accept that I was the problem). I also recently picked up an MD 24/2.8 that I like quite A LOT so other than it being really small I'm not sure what the OM would give me that I don't already have. The other option is a Nikon 28/2.8 AiS. What appeals to me about the Nikon is the close focusing ability and that it is very likely a significant step up from my Vivitar 28/2 Close Focus. I have always found that 24mm and 28mm is a large enough step when using APS-C to warrant having both. I tend to shoot a lot of close and middle distance stuff and almost never shoot anything at infinity (which if I understand theses lenses the play to the strengths of the Nikon as opposed to the OM). I have zero experience with Nikon lenses and I have to say that I am not the biggest fan of Olympus gear. I have a lot of Minolta stuff and I love it but I don't see Minolta having anything that fill the same niche as the Nikon 28/2.8 AiS Any suggestions?
