I have both. Over time I’ve completely converted to the 1.4 and I’ve have relegated the f/2 to the role of second lens when I am using a long or wide lens and want to have something small and with broader application “in the bag”. I have used the 1.4 In all sorts of climates and the focus speed is fine.

can you put your camera on a tripod and shoot the same image with identical settings on both lenses and lets compare. Maybe something near and something distant at a couple of different aperture and remove the EXIT data before you upload and lets see if a difference can be seen!

To save Pastures several hours of work, I just googled the comparison. There are many out there, draw your own conclusions.


There's also this from 3.5 years back:


It looks like the test shots were done with the X-T1 and/or the X-E2. It would have been good to see some portrait comparisons, but hey, not wishing to look a gift horse in the mouth...

There are some interesting comments following the article, including one from Damien Lovegrove who wrote that he regards the performance of the author's f1.4 to be "shocking".
