This weeks Amateur Photographer, in a review of 50mm primes which includes Canon and Zeiss, rates the Nikon 50mm f1.4 the best of the bunch.

Wide open, it is better than both the Canon and Zeiss.

Exactly.

Those who have a Zeiss will believe a report which praises the Zeiss.

Those who have a Sigma will believe a report which praises the Sigma.

Those who have a Nikon will believe a report which praises the Nikon.

Sorry to take so long with the reply:

Apparently, in the tests, the Zeiss was markedly softer wide open but was very good when stopped down. Their argument was that if you pay the extra for f1.4 then you should expect it to be good quality wide open?

The Sigma had more vignetting than the Nikon or Canon.
