DxO marks underwhelming


Compared to the current AF-S Nikkor 50mm f1.4G (which remains in the range) and the now discontinued film-era AF-D iteration, the new 58mm model is some four points behind both in overall IQ.

Individually the new Nikkor has the higher sharpness overall but the current 50mm is sharper at full aperture, while both are sharper than the AF-D model.

Stopped down to f2.8 and the new Nikkor is sharper in the centers than either but the outer field, edges and corners are similar to the old AF-D model and someway behind the current 50mm model until f11, where the new 58mm has high sharpness from corner-to-corner.
