Which fitty should I get - the Nikkor 50/1.4 AFS or Sigma 50/1.4? That was the question that has been bugging me for months since I switched back to Nikon. Then I started looking at used 50/1.4 AF-D's. I never liked the bokeh from that lens... Then on a whim, I picked up a 50/1.8 at a local camera shop.
I used to own the 50/1.8 a few years back and I never used it because I was so into zooms at the time. After running it through it's paces the last few days, I believe I saved myself a few hundred bucks over the newer 1.4's. I don't remember the 50/1.8 being so nice. Stop this puppy all the way down to f/2 and POW! :cool:
