Pros: Exceptional! Formidable and excellent blur made already from 1.8

Cons: made in china

Opinion: after trying a myriad of 50ini, both vintage AI/AI-S, E series, AF/AF-D, AF-S and all both f1.4 and f1.8 I can draw only one conclusion: STRATOSFERICO! First of all it weighs more than the brother f1.8, has 9 slats and in blurring the difference you see (brother f1.8 in certain situations has a more nervous blur). At 1.4 he detaches the planes in a fabulous way. nl I found very sharp at f 1.4, deadly from f 1.8/ f 2 on D800e (at 36 mpx) the rest are bar chatter and the tests are not worth a stump... only those who do not know how to use a full optics can pull out negative comments.

Pros: Small, light, beautiful, pleasant bokeh

Cons: Fears comparison with 50mm 1.8, sometimes has front or back focus issues

Opinion: I confirm what others have said and I add what I found: -depending on the specimens suffers from back focus or front focus, and it is a serious defect because you will be forced to shoot at least F4. -With low brightness the car focus loses so much in performance. -is slightly brighter than 1.8 for the same diaphragm. -has pretty much the same resolution as brother 1.8. Honestly with hindsight I would choose 1.8G for the price, the focus and the rest. If you really want the difference go to Sigma or the old Nikon manual F1.4 of the 70s. It produces beautiful images if you want to shoot in manual.

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 current compared to previous reviews... honestly I find the 50 1.4 G quite sharp, it has a great bokeh and small size. Its big problem is its new cost: price-to-yield ratio all in favor of version 1.8 (which has very good 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 stay. 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 zoomma to 200% you will notice that it is not as sharp as other competitors. Compared to version 1.8 and sigma art (which I do not own but tried) it has a more personal yield and much less cold. - I wanted to add after a few months of use (especially food photos) that the optics is outstanding! It is described in some reviews as a bottle bottom (I'm not technical, so I don't doubt that technically there are 50mm built and designed better) but looking at the results the photos have a "magic" and a personality that the 50mm 1.8g and the 50 1.4 art do NOT have. I'm not going to sell it anymore!

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
