Sorry man, I often agree with you, but this time, we'll have to agree to disagree and I'll stand by my statement. The 50/1.8 AFD wasn't good enough for my standards on a D700, much less a D800E. But my standards are tough. The 1.8G has a lot less veiling flare, and that's what makes the difference.

No problem, I didn't really address veiling glare in my post, just sharpness.  The G probably has better coatings, so it handles veiling glare better, I'd guess.

If I had neither other today, I'd buy the G, but it's hard for me to justify the upgrade from the D I already have, because it's so sharp and focuses so quickly.  I use a hood so glare/contrast isn't usually a problem for me.
