The AF version of the 24/2.8 doesn't share the even light, contrast and sharpness of the Ai and AiS versions. It is, however a really nice street lens on a DX body with a focus motor. It is very light and compact compared to the 24/1.8 on DX or the 35/1.8 on FX, which makes it a good walkaround lens if the "normal" 50 mm on film and FX feels a bit tight. Before I got the 24/1.8, this one was always part of the DX kit with the Ai version as a wide angle on FX
