Just when I was impressed with my Tokina 24mm, I found this superbright 28mm on ebay. While its brightness advantage over my Beroflex 28mm is nice, it seems a little bit less sharp and with a hint more distortion.
However, it quickly became my lens of choice for those low light photos where I need a rather wide lens. My 24mm Tokina is "only" f/2.8 and the 35mm Porst is faster at f/1.8, but it's like 52mm vs. 42mm. So, the 28mm 2.0 gets the place in the bag.
For some boring brick wall test images, look here.
