Sharpest 50mm/55mm/58mm f/1.4 (wide open)?
3

Is there a general consensus regarding which f/1.4 lenses exhibit best wide open sharpness? I sold all my f/1.4 Nikkors a few years ago following critical testing for this. I've also read that the Canon f/1.4 isn't so hot wide open, which is the reason I bought the cheap little "nifty-fifty" instead. I always shoot this FL handheld, and I'm looking for that extra stop (almost) of speed for occasional low light shooting. I'm hoping there's an adaptable lens at a reasonable cost that can do this well.
