Except max. aperture and resolution wide open.

Maximum relative aperture, sure; in terms of light transmission the newer lens has less vignetting so I would not be surprised to find that the overall frame illumination is higher for the new lens at 1.4 than the old at 1.2. I don't have any proof of this though.

I haven't seen any resolution comparisons (other than side-by-side casual shots) and the new lens did look to be at least as good.

I should add that I don't have a horse in this race, just enjoy discussing the various aspects
