positive:-Sharp at widest!
-Small size
-Resist flare better by old version (slightly)
-Better build finish than old version
comment:Finally got a RS version for a reasonable price, I prefer the matte finish over the old glossy one. RS version also have circular aperture and new coating.

Get one while you can! From my experience the 28 F2 is the most common of the F2s I seen on the market.
