Which lens to use

Tomorrow I am off out, the first time for weeks with my K1, but, which lens to take, I intend to take a 28mm. I have two, K series 28/3.5 and also F-28/2.8, I intend to photograph ruined stone buildings, take both I guess but open to suggestions. Any advice appreciated. Regards to all, John

I'd go for the K28/3.5 - both excellent lenses but the tactile nature of that beautifully engineered 'K' coupled with the superb results it can produce make it such a pleasure to use

But to be honest you'll not be disappointed with either

I'd go for the K... but then I'm a K-addict.

Lots of film bodies, a couple of digital ones, too many lenses (mainly older glass) and a Horseman LE 5x4.

I always favour a good manual focus lens when I have the time to use it.

Thanks for tips. Unfortunately had to scrub day out, workmen in hi vis jackets everywhere. Oh well there will be other days. Thanks again. Regards John.
