the 50mm is one of a photographers favorite lenses. ZOE LAURENT http://zoelaurent.wordpress.com from BERLIN ask me about purchasing a 50mm 1.8 versus the 50mm 1.4 recently. since i have both lenses, i thought i'd do a quick test because the .4 difference can add an additional $200 + dollars to the equation. the results of my quick, non-scientific, real-worldish test were closer than i expected. ALTHOUGH having used both lenses i can tell you the f1.4 is faster and will give you an extra stop in low light situations that can sometimes be the difference between getting the shot losing it in the shadows.
THX for asking ZOE - hope this helps.
