Hey guys, I'm trying to decide which one would work best for video. Autofocus isn't going to be used at all. Obviously I think the AIS lens is a bit more expensive, but will its build quality and control work better for video? And how does their image quality compare? Thanks!

I will recommend a zoom with VR for video shooting. But between these two, I think it is a matter of which one has a better feel for manual focusing. I haven't tried a 50 1.4 AIS, but my 50 1.8 (which I had already sold) doesn't feel that great during manual focusing.
