In terms of sharpness, fully open it beats the pants off all other nikon mounted 50mm prime :

I have the Sigma 1.4 HSM + nikon 50mm 1.8G, for portraiture, the Sigma has more "character" (pastel colors + creamy bokeh) but it is less reliable, misses the focus from time to time. The 50mm 1.8G is smaller, extremely sharp at 1.8, all across the borders and costs only 200$.
