Pros: Makes beautiful photos

Cons: I don't know

Opinion: The objectives must be judged by the images, in which their weight is as important as that of the body, photographer and editing! If the defect is correctable (contrast, microcontrast, etc., etc.), it is not a defect! The 50 f1.4 G, therefore has very few, to say none, defects (like the vast majority of today's "serious" goals). I like it and I think its contribution to the final image is very positive. I love the bright fixtures, they have another gear, they are recognized by the images, beyond the sharpness, which on the other hand, in the field in focus is always remarkable. Thank you for your patience for reading me!

Pros: size and bokeh

Cons: AF speed and cost

Opinion: I go against the tide compared to previous reviews... Honestly I find the 50 1.4 G sharp enough, it has a great bokeh and small size. Its big problem is its new cost: price-to-return ratio all in favor of version 1.8 (which has excellent performance) and costs much less. Version 1.4 makes sense used: it is about 200-220 euros and at that price I think it can fit. The autofocus is not quick but it does its own. The sharpness is more than enough for all uses (including prints), of course if a 200% zoom is noticed that it is not as sharp as other competitors. Compared to version 1.8 and sigma art (which I do not own but tried) has a more personal and much less cold yield.

Pros: Lightness, clutter, blurry and natural

Cons: Questionable sharpness, slow, frequent presence of b/f focus

Opinion: It is a lens that does not excel at anything, but with positive characteristics maybe a little forgotten. You love her or you hate her. You love it for its not overly contrasted colors, to be absolutely light and compact. too perfect. The af is not at the forefront and you can see it. It should be closed from f2 onwards to have a sufficient sharpness and especially a decent pdc in focus, the bokeh is good but sincerely I prefer that of my tamron twins . Found a virtually illiterate specimen, suffered from front focus.I had to calibrate it in the car at a value of 6 on my D750. Never tried the little brother 1.8G and I can not make the comparison

Pros: Lightweight, versatile, cost of used, fuzzy, MAF

Cons: Not received for my taste

Opinion: Premise: I own the 501.8 G, in Sigma Art 50, the Sigma Art 135, I have owned for a long time the Sigma 50 1.4 HSM, now for whim I bought this Nikon 1.4, nital with still 3 years warranty x 230 euro.. I had done before, of course the comparison with the 135 is unequal x obvious reasons but x as regards the other 50mm sorry, this is pure magic, the photos are little contraended with the transition from fire to the soft and pleasant bokeh, muted colors and warm with a skin of the Face without too many imperfections as with the art that is sharper but in my opinion more aseptic, in other words is an excellent optics from portrait, was born for this and knows how to do it excellently.. Non-existent AF problems, as accurate as a blade... Maybe you should calibrate your autofocus from specialized centers, the problem is rarely the lenses.. Straconsigliato.. Everything else is weight and excess money.

Pros: Light, colors, bokeh, weight.

Cons: AF can be improved

Opinion: Excellent lens all to do that if understood, and managed (focus first), gives great satisfactions. Tending to warm colors, even after manual white balance, excellent in portraits and close-ups, beautiful even the BN. It's not lightning in the focus, so I don't recommend it for sports photos or action. Rated 8
