OK, I read 50mm f1.4 review. The center is sharp, the edge is very soft. Since she is off center, it explains the softness. That lens is a dog for full frame.

Well, the edges are horrible, but the center is kicking. The Nikon 50 / 1.4G gives a more balanced performance:

In any case, 50mm f/2 on FF is equivalent to 25mm f/1 on mFT, so...

Unless you want to compensate for the poor resolution in RAW by means of extra sharpening, thus losing the FF noise advantage. Or compare optical performance by means of Photozone reviews. Then f/2 on FF becomes equivalent to f/2 on MFT.
