Re: Nikon 50mm. 1.4 or 1.8 G???

Thanks for all the replies.

Finally had a chance to do a little testing at home and at my kids first day at scholl and decided to keep the 1.4.

Here is what I found using it on the D800.

1.8:
Definitely faster AF, not too terrible on the 1.4
Sharper and more saturated, contrasty images at the same Apertures

1.4:

The Bokeh and seperation of the subject from the background is almost magical and the vignetting it creates (which I really likes) is amazing.
