50mm 1.4 better low light, 35mm better focal length for me

I see the world at the 35mm focal length (on full frame).

The 35mm AF-D is decent.

With the high ISO capabilities of today's cameras, it's often not necessary to be faster than F2.

Yes, 1.4 gets you razor thin DOF, but I'm not much into portraits of people where their eyes are in focus but their noses are not.

It's not the camera. It's you.
