Oly 45mm F1.8 vs Nikon 32mm F1.2
1

I had nothing better to do, so I compared the IQ of the Nikon 32mm F1.2 with the Olympus 45mm F1.8. And it didn't go well for the Nikon.

Sharpness in the middle

Sharpness in the corners

Purple fringing

Vignetting

Bokeh

The two lenses are similarly sharp. The Nikon is a tiny bit sharper in the middle, while the Oly is a tiny bit sharper in the corners. However, the Oly is superior in regard to purple fringing, vignetting and Bokeh. In some of these areas (PF and vignetting) the Oly is better by quite a lot.

You can view all of the pictures in my flickr set and you can read my in depth comparison of the two lenses on my blog.
