but the G lens is one stop faster.

Test them, as already said :D.

Cameralabs will soon publish their 50mm S review, but in the meantime they've already made some files available on flickr, including direct comparisons between the 50 f1.4 G, the 50 S, and the 55 Otus : https://www.flickr.com/photos/cameralabs/albums/

Regarding lens "speed", I invite you to compare both lenses directly as you may get a few surprises. Using the files from Cameralabs, turned to B&W as one of these lenses has a lot more CA than the other (guess which one :D), which one do you think is the 50 S in the comparisons below, between the 50 S open at f1.8, and the 50 f1.4 G open at f1.4 ?

50 S @ f1.8 vs 50 f1.4 G at f1.4. Is the 50 S on the left or on the right ?

50 S @ f1.8 vs 50 f1.4 G at f1.4. Is the 50 S on the left or on the right ?

The point that this comparison makes is that variables other than just f stop numbers can affect DOF, to some degree.
