Anyone experience w/ Nikon 50mm 1.4d and Tamron 45mm 1.8? Thinking of switching

With the rebate on the Tamron 45mm I am considering switching from my Nikon 1.4d.  I have read TOO many reviews, but nothing so much with a comparison to the D mostly with the G.

My main concern is how is AF speed< esp in the dark?  I am not looking for Sports speed, just my long ago experience with aftermarket lenses was dismal, granted that was pre- SP and Art days so I am thinking of going back to the well. I shoot an 850 and have the 50 1.4d , 35f2d, thinking of ditching both for the 45mm for now...

Use will be mainly walkaround lens, but want to be able to use it low=light.

If anyone has experience using both these lenses I would like to know what you think.

Thanks,
