I would not know about the new 50mms from Nikon except what I have read, but they probably "measure" sharper - look, there are very few lenses from Nikon that are not plenty sharp for picture taking, especially at f 5.6. It usually isn't lack of sharpness that messes up a picture ...

This shot was processed with Portrait Professional software, and actually the facial features are quite softened compared to the original file. It's the contrast in the eyes that has you fooled.

Anyway, for me, the el cheapo 50 d is all I need to do this kind of shot, if I am going to do head shots at 50mm ... and by god, it has an aperture ring, which I really prefer to use ... old school ...
