It's one of my favorite lenses too. I take it on every vacation with my F80. Great for shooting buildings in cities where distances are short or you can't back up far enough without falling into a fountain.
But on a DSLR - agh! It's a 36mm equivalent. Not nearly as useful.
I might be convinced to overlook the dust bunny problems on the sensor but I cannot get past the way the DSLR crop factor destroys all my favorite wide angle and standard primes. And don't even get me started on my 85mm portrait lens.
I just hope that film will be around a few years longer - at least till my eyes fade away.
