I did a small informal test here: https://www.downgra.de/Geek/Nikon-50mm-shoot-out/ and here https://www.downgra.de/Geek/Adapted-50mm-Shootout/

As already mentioned in the thread, the S version is crazy sharp wide open whereas you have to step down the old G version to f/2.8-f/4 to reach the same sharpness. The S is also much better corrected.

If it's worth the money is up to you of course. Except the two exotics, the new S f/1.2 and the Noct, there is not much available which is significantly better than the 50mm f/1.8 S for the Z mount at the moment imho.

HTH,
Rico
