Keeping this quick, outside of actually just wanting 50mm, is there any reason to pick one up at this point?

It's an older lens that's still pricey ($850 on B&H and $650 for a good used one on KEH) when you can get the VIltrox 56mm f/1.4 for $330 or shell out $100 more for the Fuji 56mm f/1.2.

So I'm wondering as someone who loves the ZEISS Touit 32mm f/1.8, what need/gap/whatever does the 50mm fill right now with the other options available?

I mean the zeiss is a 1:1 macro so I don’t see it as comparable to any that you listed. Two diff purposes.

If you need a cheaper 1:1 macro that performs well, you could mount several versions of the nikon 60 2.8.
