After trying both the ZD 50mm f/2 and the Sigma 50 f/1.4 at B&H on Sunday, I decided on the ZD 50 f/2. The Sigma had slightly narrower depth of field, but it was not that noticeable in real-world use, at least not in the portraits I shot in the store (other customers/employees). Also, the ZD is mind-blowingly sharp. It could resolve microscopic detail in skin; simply amazing.

Yeah ...

So I pulled the trigger that the 50mm f/2 is on its way.

Congrats, mate. You will love this lens (in spite of the occasional focus miss until you get the hang of it).

Thank you all for your help and input.

You're more than welcome. Enjoy ...
