50/1.8G Takes it: 50G vs 50D Side by Side
Jun 19, 2011

Well I recently picked up the new 50/1.8G. I have an stellar copy of the 1.8D that I will not part with, BUT my quick tests today show that the G version is better in both Bokeh (considerably) and contrast.

My only caveat is that the G version is considerably bigger and perceptibly flimsier.

The full comparison is here, and shows the broadest range of apertures.
