The only one thats really sharp is the 50mm F1.8.  The 28 mm rates as one of Rockwells worst 10 lenses
Always listen to old people or when they die you live on in ignorance

The 100/2.8 is also good, and I used the 75-150/3.5 for years with good results. Maybe Ric got a bad one?

Mine is not so bad as Ric describes. A little under par compared with  the 35-70/3.3 version.
