50mm MD 1.7 vs 1.4 rokkor-x?

Hi all,

My current walkaround lens is a later MD 1.7, but I may be able to work out a trade for a rokkor-x 1.4. I've become sort of gluttonous with these cheap and fast lenses, so naturally I want that extra half stop, but I'm very pleased with the 1.7 and don't want to sacrifice it's sharpness. Does the rokkor 1.4 match it? Both these lenses seem to get rave reviews, but I already have a 45mm f/2 rokkor that I'm keeping for sentimental reasons and having a third standard prime lens just seems silly at this point. After getting the NEX for it's portability, I'm already having to decide which three lenses I want to stuff in my bag when I go out.
