Hi all,

I am looking for a 24mm lens for use with an 8mm extension tube such as the Nikon PK-11A. Unfortunately, with that tube, you need to set aperture manually, thus a non-G lens.

My primary purpose for this will be "environmental close-ups", although would be nice if it was also a sharp general purpose landscape lens as well.

Manual focus would be fine. Zoom or prime would both be a consideration, although a recent goal is weight reduction in the field bag. Is the current 24mm f/2.8D my best option? Any suggestions greatly appreciated? I have never used a non-G lens, thus could use some advice on gear that has been around for a while.

Thanks in advance,
Don
