50mm Nikkor f/1.4G Portraits

I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!! This lens is fantastic. Incredible sharpness from f/2 up and awesome performance even at f/1.4. In my opinion it’s the ultimate portrait lens on a DX camera body. I bought it from B&H photo in the USA because it was $140 cheaper than in Canada. But recently the prices of all glass in the US just increased (even Sigma stuff). Now, it’s actually cheaper in Canada from Aden Camera than it is from B&H. Crazy. I’m really glad I pulled the trigger on this f/1.4 when I did! 😀 It’s a sweet upgrade to my already really-good 50mm f/1.8 I have. The bokeh is far more creamy & buttery with the 1.4 than the 1.8.  It always seems like a small step, that little hop of one stop, but it is like lightyears in lens quality.
