I tried it myself today. I should warn I'm not someone who has ever relied on "stock" focus screen for manual focusing, although I have used super-precision screens on other bodies with very good results. I was unable to reliably MF with the Df using a 50G f/1.4 at about a distance of 10' with indoor lighting conditions. I couldn't even get the MF to be within the coarse rangefinder/dot threshold (ie, the rangerfinder worked better than my eyes in every one of my attempts).

G lenses are not designed well for precise manual focus.
