Pay no attention to Mr Nasty.

The 50/f1.4 in all forms is a Nikon classic. The optics haven't changed much over the years. You will find that you will need to open up to f2 to get the sharpness and depth of field to be usable. The 50/1.8 is actually sharper at 1.8, but by 2.8 both are the same. Which ones to buy? Go to and count how many 50/1.4s are for sale compared to 1.8s. That is where the answer to your question.

For me, I bought a 1.8D and sold my 1.4G, and bought a mint FM2n with the change.
