    I tested both. Both are sharp at near to mid distance. Edge performance is similar too. Both have CRC, f/2 lens CRC is in front, f/2.8 lens CRC is at the rear.

    Cant really split which is really better, newer f/2.8 have Nikon SIC coating which gives better contrast, the lens element looks purplish. Early f/2 no Nikon SIC coating.

    I went with f/2 because I shoot indoors.

    Here is a link to a short write up of both lens for your reference.

    Here is a link to the serial numbers & date of manufacture.

    Haven't posted photos for a while...

    All shot with Nikon Df.

    28mm f/3.5 Nikkor-H, Processed in LR6, BW and HDR (Strong)
    Lower Pierce Reservoir

    ISO 100, 1/1250 f/3.5 Aperture Priority

    From Nikkor history 3 “Lenses that have made history – Profiles of noteworthy Nikkor lenses

    ...it became urgent to develop a high performance wide-angle lens. NIKKOR designer Mr. Wakimoto dramatically corrected and improved the comatic aberrations at the edge of the field that had been the weakness of retro focus types, resulting in a 28mm lens with excellent performance. Many out there still believe that not even the lenses we have today can compare to the quality of images this lens produced. Photographs that faithfully depict the details of their subjects have a knife-like sharpness and power from the maximum aperture. This lens perhaps created the image of NIKKOR lenses as being sharp with crisp contrast.

    50mm f/1.8 AiS, PP in LR6, BW and HDR (Light)
    Dongtan, Korea

    ISO 100, 1/320 f/1.8 Aperture Priority

    My personal favourite (for size, price and performance), having bought, used for a while and sold one "version 3" (0.6m min focus), I re-purchased one that is Japanese domestic model (0.45m min focus)

    50mm f/1.2 AiS, JOOC
    Gunma, Japan

    ISO 100, 1/2500 f/1.2 Aperture Priority

    I was poisoned by this thread... love the OOF shapes but still learning how to use this lens...

    135mm f/3.5 Nikkor-Q, PP in LR
    Shinjuku, Japan

    ISO 3600, 1/160 f/5.6 Manual

    135mm f/3.5 Nikkor-Q, JOOC
    Shinjuku, Japan

    ISO 200, 1/160 f/3.5 Manual

    You are always welcome DDAMD. Nice to see pics from your collection of old Nikkors, especially the pre AI Nikkors.

    I think I should transfer these photos taken by the 50mm f1.2 to this thread instead as it is more appropriate.
