Get the 50mm f1.8...

My 50mm f1.4 just isn't a very sharp lens. It cannot even match the sharpness of my 18-70mm Kit Zoom unless I stop it down to f8. At f1.8, it's really a "soft focus" lens, good for those types of effects but I am not a fan of the soft focus "look". BTW, I also have a rather ancient 50mm f2 Nikkor HC, AI converted, and that lens makes my 50mm f1.4 look like a "coke bottle bottom".
