  • Nikon 24mm f/2.8 AIS Nikkor

    8 out of 10 points and recommended
    Compact, quite sharp, good build. Has an aperture ring and distance scale. Smooth focus ring.
    So-so contrast in ideal conditions. Soft glow in tricky light.

    Got this lens for 93 EUR (105 USD) including shipping, and for that price I'm quite satisfied with it. Once I got to know when to use it and when not to (i.e. indoors when light is coming from all sorts of angles), it's been a pleasure to use. Check out the Flickr groups dedicated to this lens before buying it, as well as Jose Rocha's review.
