f/1.4 is really shallow depth of field ... by the time you get to f/2.0 or f/2.8 your images will sharpen up (assuming shutter speed is still okay)

Frankly, the new 50/1.8G is the one to get unless you really really need to use f/1.4

From a quick checking of prices for the 35mm, 50mm and 85mm.. The only one I can afford is the 50mm. So while I might agree that one may be more natural to my shooting habits.. I will just have to learn to move around more or less.

So back to the questions about the 50mm's
