Wow, beautiful picture. From what I have heard the 1.4G is not as sharp @ 1.8 as the 1.8G is @ 1.8. Naturally everything gets sharper as you stop it down. Take for example your beautiful pic, it's stopped down to f8. My thought is if you need to stop down a 1.4 to a f4 to get a really sharp image.. then what was the point of paying the extra for a 1.4

Thank you!

I don't know how the newly announced 50mm f/1.8G stacks up in comparison, but my experience with the AF 50mm f/1.4 (non-D) and the AF-D 50mm f/1.8 is in line with this:


However, if I was buying a 50mm lens right now, I would definitely want to compare the f/1.8 & the f/1.4 G versions.
