oh wow - it amazes me more and more - even the brand new Nikkor 50 f/1.4 G on 24 MPixel looks like crap in direct competition - I am still not a big fan of the focal length - that's maybe the reason why I never bought a 50 mm lens to date but my investment in the 40 STM turns out to be a real fantastic deal

Well, the key is it's only a f2.8 lens. So, realistically, you should compare it to other f2.8 lenses that are not retrodesigns, like the 100mm f2.8 macro.

The f1.4 etc. type lenses have much bigger diameter glass, much more aberrations need to be corrected, much harder.
