I've been thinking about changing this lens to 58/1.4G but the price tag of the 58 is so hefty I can't afford it yet. And this "middle brother" does the job quite well almost all of the time

Excellent photographs of beautiful and natural 'models', taken with a excellent optic by an excellent photographer who obviously doesn't need an expensive 1.4/58mm lens at all

7th. image 'lady with black cat' would probably had slightly better bokeh if taken with 58/1.4 but other than that it does not look you actually need it.

Great shots, well done

Excellent set! Sure this lens renders differently than 50 1.8G and D.

Thank you! I also think that the other portrait with green background might be a bit nicer with 58.

I used to own 50/1.8D and the 1.4G was a nice upgrade as it is much better. The D-version had quite rough bokeh compared to the G-version in addition of lower sharpness.

My main gripes with the 50/1.4G are the bokeh outlining and lack of contrast/haze wide open.

Wouldn't trade my Art for the world but for the price- boy do I miss this lens! (May have used this thread today to convince a friend to pick this up for their newly acquired D800E)

They are cheap used. While the 1.8 may be a better buy, it's just more fun to shoot 1.4.

I actually recommended they buy new for once in life... used are running $325-$350... new is $440... i told them personally id spend $90 for a 5 year warranty.

Oh, and its nice if someone actually sends money Nikon's way lol.

I have the 50 1.4G and really don't care for it. At 1.4 it's soft, but I can't seem to get it to fine tune correctly. I really want to try the Sigma Art.

Was my experience as well. Tried two, returned them both. But I think it must be sample variation as I see a bunch of other people (this thread for example) with nice images wide open. Might give it a second try...
