How does the 50 mm f/1.8 D compare to the 35 mm f/1.8 G?
9 months ago

I am looking for opinions on the 50 mm f/1.8 D, in particular compared to the 35 mm f/1.8 G (from people who have both).  I already have the 35 mm one, so I am familiar with it and I can use that as a reference point.

Other than the obvious difference in the field of view (and all that it brings with it), how do the various characteristics of these lenses compare when used on a DX body?  In particular, how is the axial chromatic aberration  of the 50 mm when wide open?

One of the things that has been bothering me about the 35 mm is axial chromatic aberration, especially when it appears on highlights on shiny objects such as brass instruments.  Using a small aperture solves this, but that is not an option in low light ...
