Re: Nikon 50mm. 1.4 or 1.8 G???

Thanks for all the replies.

Finally had a chance to do a little testing at home and at my kids first day at scholl and decided to keep the 1.4.

Here is what I found using it on the D800.

Definitely faster AF, not too terrible on the 1.4
Sharper and more saturated, contrasty images at the same Apertures


The Bokeh and seperation of the subject from the background is almost magical and the vignetting it creates (which I really likes) is amazing.
