Latest Review Posted Chinon Auto MC 28mm f2.8
Cheap and easy to find. Tons of copies everywhere. I got mine for around 15 bucks and it will spend most of it's life mounted on my P30t. There really isn't much difference in the build quality between the 28 and the highly recommended Chinon 50 1.7(I have both of them). A bit plasticy, but it's to be expected at this price. The colours are pretty good and are really natural looking. It's a pretty decent lens even at f 2.8, and gets even better when you stop it down. The only thing I don't like about this lens is the really long focus throw, perhaps someone shooting video would appreciate it, but that's just not me. Oh and the best thing - no need to worry about destroying it, just get another one, I've actually seen them go for as low as 5 bucks.

Are there lenses with better optical and build quality - yes. Are there better lenses for this price - I doubt it.

And here's a sample at 2.8 on my K10D(I was too lazy to get the K5 2 out, the K10 was on my desk):

And a pretty tight crop form the same image:
