| p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · 50mm 1.8G vs 50mm 1.4G with two sample screen captures. |
I have read tons on this debate. The 1.8G has been hard to find, so I was unable to test. Well finally got a 1.8 in today and compared it to my 1.4. Both on a D600.
I used single point of focus on the same spot (below my screenshots) and just did two quick screen grabs (1:1). I did this at 1.8, 2.8 and 4. The 1.8 won every single time.
I thought this was very interesting, in my heart I wanted the 1.4 to win mainly cause of the huge double price it commands. I guess for people having to have that 2/3 stop you have to have it their is no way around it. I guess for the rest of the world the 1.8 is the clear winner.
(PS i have 1.4 for sale )
Hope this helps somebody. I know I know I guess I should have listened to all the posts...It was just a bit hard for me to believe it was a clear difference. I even had somebody who is not a camera person come look at the pics and right off the bat they picked the 1.8 over the 1.4.
