I have never had a problem with the 50mm D in bright light.

From the last line in the link you posted:

"This is just one little test with a sample of two lenses and statistically, it's meaningless. Don't get too hung up by it."

Both are old lenses that performed very well on film. On digital cameras, they have problems in bright light with reflections from the sensor. If you want a prime lens, get the AF-S DX 35mm f/1.8G.
