I'm an aussie so the kool-aid slur doesn't actually mean anything. 

I even asked my wife, who is american, and she could really explain it to me either.  But I know it's a slur, probably a bit like reminding folk that Ghandi used to drink his own urine, I guess.

If you are referring to the fact that the Nikon is soft on both sides then you are right, but I don't use it at f1.8.  It's better at f2.0

In fact, both the Pentax and Nikon 50mm lenses work quite well at f2.0 closeup in low lighting, which is where I use them.  However, since the Pentx is so obviously good on one side and bad on the other I would like to get my money's worth!

I hope that's ok!
