To see advantages of 50mm f/1.8, you have to use it at f/1.8

and I do

and with suitable subjects that require f/1.8.

I did some portraits. With 1.8-2.8 those faces are like 3D and trying to jump out a bit With 4.5 unfortunately such effect is gone. They are flat

Random test shots won't show anything, unless you pixel peep.

Have you seen the candlestick? The blur behind and general vividness due to low DOF @ 1.8.

What kind of subjects do you have in mind?

Ah, I went back and expanded the photos. You are correct about the “pop” that we get using 50mm. The microcontrast is amazing.
