Photographylife compared them.

However, just having seen shots wide open with the S version, I can say that the G version which I own is destroyed by the S version. The G version is actually good f/2.8 or smaller, but wide open it is pretty soft. My Pentax-A 50mm f/1/.7 introduced in 1984 is actually sharper at f/1.7 than the G is at f/1.8.

When stopped down though the G is actually a really outstanding lens. But even then the S is better.

So many people are selling their S version on forums like here and FM for around $500 that it's pretty much a no-brained to get one if you like that focal length.
