Nikon AF-S Nikkor 50mm f/1.4 G

Nikon just announced the newest addition to their lens lineup at Photokina in Cologne, Germany. It’s the AF-S Nikkor 50mm f1.4G – a fast prime – YAY! I love working in low light with wide-open apertures to throw the background out of focus. I’ve been using its predecessor, the Nikkor 50mm f1.4 D, for many many years with great results. But the new rounded 9-blade diaphragm, faster focusing, Silent Wave Motor, and bayonet-style lens hood may mean it’s time to upgrade this focal length in the olgear box!

What do YOU think? Leave me a comment if you think it’s worth the upgrade…why or why not?
