50/1.8 is a sharper lens than 50/1.4, so a little gain in f-stop
that would enable you to take soft pictures is not worth it. IMHO.

Bought the 50 1.4 at Samy's in Marina Del Rey yesterday (already had the 85mm 1.8 and the 50mm 1.8).

My side-by-side playing with the two 50mm's doesn't show the 1.8 as being the sharper lens.
