You put a lot of time onto this! Thanks. As an audio person, I enjoyed your references. I like microphone screens. Fringing is so easy to see.

I have a 50 1.4d. At 1.4 it is not sharp and contrast is low. Not useful to me.

I inherited 2 manual focus  50/1.8 from my father. One of these is sharper at 1.8 than the other.

I really have not found a use for the 1.2 that I also inherited. I suppose it would flatter bad skin.

My sharpest 50 is the 18mm CX on the Nikon V1.

If I were to get serious about this focal length, the Sigma would be my choice.
