a meaningful review

i bought the f1.8G after reading this review + others

http://neilvn.com/tangents/lens-review-nikon-50mm-f1-4g-vs-nikon-50mm-f1-8g/

The f1.8 focuses faster, is lighter, and is half price of the f1.4

the bokeh might favor the f1.4 slightly but not enough to sway me to it

the extra 2/3 stop might be useful to some but with the D600 I can safely dial up the ISO

Hope this helps

Cheers,
