More good use of the 28mm f/2.8 AIS here, Luc and Jacques!

Here is another night shot, handheld wide open with D5100 at 1/10 s ISO 800. I was also impressed by the corner performance wide open when I got this lens.


(note EXIF is has incorrect focal length, as this was before I re-chipped the lens).

Very nice Øivind. Great bokeh also, no cat eye shape or onion rings I like that.

This thread has been a treat! Never having used a 28mm lens, now I am wondering if I am missing out.

Luc, you started a very enjoyable thread!  All of you, Øivind, Jacques and John have shown different characteristic aspects of this optical gem.  Thank you for sharing!

Thanks for the kind comment on my night capture.
Luc, so ESA took it into space (especially the first one, all really nice).  ;D

On a smaller scale it works quite well in reversed mode (BR-2A + a filter ring):
