When used on an APS-C format DSLR, the 28mm focal length delivers an angle of view similar to what a near-normal 44.8mm lens delivers on a full frame sensor format body.

How sharp is your zoom at 28mm?
My zoom is f/4.5 at 28 mm with nowhere near the sharpness. All wide aperture zooms covering 28 mm are huge, heavy, expensive, and not as sharp. For my object distances, I can zoom with my feet.
