Which 50mm prime best for D700 ?


Looking to buy 50mm prime for my D700.

Which should perform best on a D700 ?

1. Nikon 50/1.8D
2. Nikon 50/1.4D
3. Nikon 50/1.4G AF-S
4. Sigma 50/1.4

I'm after :

1. Fast focus (!)
2. Accurate focus
3. Sharpness
4. Nice bokeh
5. Over all best image quality

I've had the 50/1.4D back in my D200 days, wasn't happy with it, slow focus, not that sharp as well - but might have been I had a bad copy. sold it long time ago...
