  To equal film resolution with digital you need 24MP and upwards, currently 
there's only 2, a Nikon and the Mamiya ZD.

          I owned the 17mm f4. It was not sharp at the corners or edges, I had 
to crop it so much I wound up with the same coverage I was getting my 20mm 
          IMO I'm against using aftermarket lenses on any brand camera, if you 
go that far then why not use another brand body? Images from a DSLR will 
surpass any film lens these days.

          I would suggest a more easily found alternative: The Tamron SP 90/2.5 
macro. It also needs an 1B (Strong skylight) filter.

          If you are hooked in wideangles, I would add the rectilinear 17/4 - 
despite of Peters view, which might be considered a bit "narrow" ;-). It would 
widen dramatically your view from 24, much more than 20 or 21mm, but without
