Re: Nikon 58mm 1.4G VS 50mm 1.8s

I had the pair a while back as well. I came to the conclusion that I (in post) could either selectively “over” sharpen the 58’s subject, or selectively add a bit of Gaussian blur to the 50S bokeh and they’d be pretty identical. 58 does have magic some times but 50 will probably give you more consistent results. When the 58 doesn’t give magic I find it less appealing.

Having recently picked up the new S 50mm I thought I'd post this comparison. I know they don't have the exact same setting or PP but still, you can grasp how these two lenses compare (or not)
