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

I assume that in the 50mm image you were closer to the subject - as I would not expect the background to show as much blur if you shot both lenses from the same distance.

May I ask if you would please try a different test - take a picture of the same scene from the same distance. I would expect the 50mm lens to show much less blur in the background due to shorter focal length and slower max aperture. I would also suggest a subject distance of at least 3m as too close obviously the blur will be hard to judge.

I don't have the 50mm Z lens otherwise I would do the test.
