Re: Which "Nifty" 50mm ?

If you want to shoot wide open and get max sharpness, you'll have to fork over for the 1.4, per the test charts I linked. I rarely shoot wide open, so the 1.8D works extremely well for me, especially for $119. By 2.8, it's good, at least in the center. It apparently has less distortion than the new 1.8G.

If I was enamored of the wafer-thin depth of field look which reduces the denizens of the Nikon lens forum to jelly, then yes, I would be first in line for the 1.4 :^)
