The 35mm 2.0 is actually sharper than the 50mm 1.4 when both are wide open.

As you stop down the 1.4 it will get sharper and it is slightly sharper than the 35mm when both are at 2.0

From about f/2.8 and up they are pretty much equal in sharpness.

35mm 2.0 vs 50mm 1.4

Thanks for the link but cant really judge since I use my phone now, tommorow I will check it using desktop monitor. My plan is to use this lens for group people photo and indoors phothograph so I guess will rarely use f2.8 or faster. Anyway, do you use this lens too? For portrait? How do you think about contrast, colour and af (again compare to 50/1.4)
