Just posted today (9-10) dpreview has posted its review of the 50 1.4. http://www.dpreview.com/lensreviews/nikon_50_1p4_n15/ And to put the above review in context, it probably would also interest you as a Nikon shooter to read as well the review of the new Sigma 50 1.4. Dpreview posted this one mid-August. http://www.dpreview.com/lensreviews/sigma_50_1p4_c16/ The Nikon 50 1.4 does well as a classic small standard prime lens. The Sigma does well as a modernly designed prime targeted at low light and portrait shooting. The new DPReview lens reviews are IMO the class of the field. Really thorough and with the technical measurements presented in easy to understand and interpret visual displays. Plus hands-on attention to other aspects of lens behavior. If you are a fan of the 50 1.4, as I am, I think you will find these reviews illuminating and intersting.
