I have no idea which 28mm is the best, but my best 28mm is the Minolta MDiii 28mm f2.8 5/5 version.

This thread might be of some interest.

The SMC Pentax 28mm F3.5 is very good, the smc Pentax-m 28mm 3.5 is not much worse. I also enjoy shooting with the Pentacon 29mm F2.8


Thank you, Dino, very much

2.8/28mm lenses were usually the "bread-and-butter"-lenses for any manufacturer (together with the 2.8/135mm and the standard 50mm lenses, of course). This means that there were obvious restrictions for the engineer - i onther words they had to find the right balance between price and quality. Only exception was probably Leica and - to a certain extent - Nikon with their rather expensive 2.8/28mm Nikkor.

Here are a few remarks (using them on 24 MP FF):

Canon FD 2.8/28mm SC and Canon nFD 2.8/28mm: good allround lenses, a bit more resolution and lower contrast than the [7/7] Minolta 2.8/28mm
Konica Hexanon 3.5/28mm [7 lens version]: good allround lens with low distortion
Konica Hexanon 3.5/28mm [5 lens version]: corners are weaker than with the 7-lens version
Mamiya Sekor E 2.8/28mm: on film it was very good; not tested digitally!
Minolta MC-X, MD-I, MD-II 2.8/28mm [7/7]: good allround lens, visible CAs (red-green), rather low distortion
MD-III 2.8/28mm [5/5]: corners weaker than with the [7/7] Minolta 2.8/28mm
Nikkor Ai 2.8/28mm: nice lens, good resolution, CAs relatively low (broader than Minolta, but less visible; blueish-yellow)
Yashica ML 2.8/28mm [7 lens version]: corners rather weak, worst lens of the bunch. Be aware thet there's an 8-lens version which may be better!
Zeiss Distagon CY 2.8/28mm: even though it's one of the weakest (and cheapest!) Zeiss CY lenses, I would say it's the best of the bunch, but only by a small margin!. Less CA than the Minolta, some field curvature, but all other aberratioins rather well corrected.

If i've time over the weekend, and if the weather is OK, i'll post an upgrade to my recent 28mm Rokkor test (http://artaphot.ch/minolta-sr/objektiv-vergleiche/506-minolta-mc-md-28mm-lenses-on-24mp-full-frame).

The SMC K 28/3.8 is probably one of the best 28's, it compares to Zeiss and Leica 28's, only much cheaper.
Klaus, you have a typo, with the Topcor RE 28/2.8, which I agree that it's good.
Minolta 28/2.5 is one of my favourites.
X-Fujinon 28/1.9


Thank you, very much.

I added the 2,5/28 and the Fuji

I like the RMC Tokina 2.8/28mm as well as my TOPCOR RM 2.8/28mm (not UV version) and Vivitar 1.9/28mm


Thank you.

The three were in my list.

The Topcor should be very good.


The RE Topcor 2.8/28mm has good corners even at f2.8, but the field is rather weak. I would not recommend it, since lenses such as the Minolta 3.5/28mm [5/5], the Nikkor Ai/AiS 2.8/28mm or the Canon new FD 2.8/28mm are much better in the field!

If you send me your email adress by PM, i can send you the 4000x6000px images of the Topcon RE 2./28mm at f2.8, f5.6, and f11.
