AF-S Nikkor 50mm 1.8G

It's my new favorite lens for D600. The other 50mm lens I have in F mount is Sigma 50/f1.4 DG HSM, which I love and hate at the same time. 50 1.8G is sharper and far more reliable (autofocus wise) than Sigma, and its bokeh is quite beautiful too. For $216, I'd say it's a steal.

I will find time to run a test on all the 50mm lens I have, that includes:
  1. Summilux pre-ASPH E46
  2. Summilux ASPH
  3. Noctilux pre-ASPH (V4)
  4. Pentax SMC Takumar (but I don't have a Canon DSLR to test...)
  5. Sigma DG HSM
  6. Nikkor 50 1.8G
  7. Fuji XF 35/f1.4 on X-Pro 1 (I know it's not a true FF 50mm, but I am just crazy)

Stay tuned!
