Nikonians,
I'm looking to get a wide-angle lens for my N80. I currently a 50mm f/1.8 and a 28-80 3.3-5.6. Ever since I bought the 50mm 1.8
The 28-80 does not touch the camera.
I have narrowed my search down to two lenses, the 28mm 2.8 and the 24mm 2.8 (please do not try to sway me towards a zoom lens)
Is there a difference in quality between the two? Would I benefit greatly in the 4mm difference of the two? Note that the 24mm is over $160.00 more than the 28mm
If anyone has either lens maybe you could shed some light on my dilemma.

Just a note to all the Nikonians out there buying the N65 and N80 in kit form. BUY THE BODY ALONE AND FOR THE SAME $99.00 THAT YOU ARE ABOUT TO PAY FOR THE 28-80MM ZOOM GET THE 50MM 1.8 AF. I took about 10 rolls of film with the 28-80 before I bought the 50mm 1.8. After the first roll with the 50mm I felt like I was finally getting what I was looking for. Extremely sharp and contrasty photos roll after roll. When I take my photos and place them side by side with the photos that I had taken with the 28-80 zoom anyone could see the difference. Note that the shots taken with 28-80 and the ones taken with the 50mm were of the same film brand and same developing lab. I took the advice given to me from this site and bought the 50mm and it was the best $99.00 that I have spent on any photo gear.
Now I always ask for as much advice as possible before I start throwing my money into the wind.
Thanks
