    I saw the new Nikon 50mm f:1.4G is stock in Ottawa, at Galaxy Cameras ($570)
    anyone tried this lens yet? Other than being bigger and heavier than the AF
    50mm f:1.4D and $240 more!!! I am thinking the older one is more bang for
    the buck!

    I haven't tried it yet, but I would be interested to know how it
    performs, wide open.

    I have the AF-D and AIS versions and they are optically similar apart
    from the better coating on the AF version.

    "Headlining the new features is a built-in Silent Wave Motor which
    enables autofocus with the D60/D40x/D40 DSLRs, but the lens also boasts
    a brand-new optical system with 8 elements in 7 groups for improved
    image quality, a circular aperture diaphragm for more attractive
    background blur, and a barrel design which does not change length on
    focusing."

    "ts newly developed optical system delivers high performance, as it
    efficiently corrects sagittal coma flare and chromatic aberration."

    Better VR than the SWM. Means in-body I.S. cameras still have the
    edge when they can mount f1.4 lenses on them.

    If you need VR in a 50mm f:1.4 lens, then you really don't have a clue or
    skill!! I have been hand-holding fast glass for decades. I was asking if
    anyone has it yet, so RichA that excludes you, as you can't tell an aperture
    form your arsehole!

    Ok, if you are shooting at 1/15th of a second with a 50mm lens on a
    camera with a crop factor of 1.5, will the image be as sharp with and
    without in-body I.S.?
    The question is pretty simple.
