Nikkor AI 50mm 1.4 VS 1.8 for the GH2
Posted 25 December 2012 - 01:32 PM
I'm currently putting together my first set of AI Lenses for the GH2 and had my eye on a Nikkor 50mm 1.4 AI which i'd be paying 120$ for.
While doing some research and comparison info online i've seen a lot of people find the Nikkor 50mm 1.8 AI to be a much better pick at archieving a film style look.
It also will cost me $60 less
I have a hard time deciding, but wanted to see if anyone could help. Is the 1.8 really much sharper than the 1.4? And is it going to be a better pick over the 1.4?

I have a Nikkor 50mm F1.8, and it's super sharp, and probably sharper than the F1.4, however, some people prefer a softer image when shooting HD or 4k to achieve a less "video" look. It's all up to personal preference.
