Pros; Clear images, nice bokeh, goodish contrast, pretty colours. Cons; Soft at large openings. Cover clamping elemnts tore the end tabs of the lens. The use of a filter avoids damages.

This lens is so fast focusing that you need scientific methods to compare it with the f/1.8 really. I do find the Nikon 50mm f/1.4 G markedly better than Nikon 50mm f/1.8 G. focusing speed is so fast that if it was faster i wouldn't be able to notice the extra speed :) And i don't believe in focusing with lens cap on, that's crazy and no one does it, even if u got instant focus with the lens covered it means bunk because u wont get an image!! I did a real life test here http://youtu.be/NxWXbw ...

The Nikon AF-S Nikkor 50mm f/1.4G is probably my favourite lens, replacing my previous favourite lens, the Nikon AF 50mm f/1.8 D, only recently. The AF is not as quick on the 1.4G as it is on the 1.8D, but it is so much quieter ! I love shooting at f/1.4 to 2.8 where this lens looks its most gorgeous, in my opinion. It's great as a portrait lens on an APS-C sensor DSLR like my D300 where it becomes a 75mm due to the DX sensor. It's not as sharp as the AF-S 50mm f/1.8 G, which it looks very ...
