so im in the market for a new lens. My camera is a Nikon FM2n, which means im looking at used manual focus lenses on E-bay.
my question is, of the following lenses, which performs the best. IE sharpest, least ammount of distortion, etc etc.

Im looking at the 20mm F2.8 AIs

the 24mm f2.8 AI-s

and the 28mm f2.8 AIs

im leaning toward the 20 or 24mm

dont bother suggesting a wide angle zoom, i cant afford the one i want (17-35mm F2.8) and thats the quality of glass im looking for, so to get that quality in a price range i can afford, im looked at a used prime lens.

I've heard nothing but good things on the 28mm.

You can also try www.keh.com for used camera gear. They seem to have a pretty good reputation for quality used stuff and customer service.

Personally, i'd probably go with a 24mm. I have a 28mm Pentax mount for my K1000 and often wish it was a little wider.
