Me too! Sweet bokeh and very sharp.

50mm never used to be my thing. Same goes for telephoto.

But these days, one of my favorite things to do is putting a new nifty fifty through its paces! 

Thanks for sharing.

How does the Konica 40 f/1.8 compares to this? I have it and am thinking of selling it to get this 50 f/1.4 instead..

I own the 40/1.8 as well. It's a nice lens, much smaller than either the 50/1.7 or 1.4, but not quite as sharp as either, and doesn't have the bokeh of the 50/1.4. I often take it on hikes because of it's size and wider angle than the 50s.

I prefer the 50 on APC for animal head shots.  When the nose is centered  gives the face a good proportion.
