Nikon AF-S Nikkor 50mm f/1.4G review (mounted on a Nikon D800E) by Ivo Freriks at Camera Stuff Review: One of the best Nikon Lenses we've tested so far.

"For a non-zoom lens of 50 mm (since generations already the 'standard' focal length and therefore very popular), this Nikkor is firmly priced of course. Nevertheless, with its extreme sensitivity, it also lives up to that price. The mechanical and optical qualities are very high. The resolution is exceptionally good, and with the exception of some vignetting at large apertures, there are actually no lens errors. The lens is large enough for you to wrap your hand around when shooting. On our wish list for the Nikon 50 mm 1.4G is only vibration reduction. . . . read more

Conquering the darkness, SLR Magic HyperPrime CINE 35mm T0.95 review (and comparison to the Voigtländer Nokton 35mm f1.2 ASPH and Nikon 50mm f1.4G) at 3D-Kraft.de

"After the first look in September at the already surprisingly good prototype, it was amazing to see how SLR Magic could even increase the performance of that lens in the meantime. Thanks the new coating, CAs are almosty completely gone. The build quality is very good, sharpness, contrast and bokeh at 35mm on APS-C (comparable to 52mm on fullframe) are even at open aperture as good as the best 50/1.4 lenses I have seen so far on FF. As soon as I receive a Leica "M", I will do a comparison with a Summilux 50/1.4 ASPH. Only downside is the size and weight as you will loose the compactness . . . read more

Nikon AF-S Nikkor 50mm f/1.4G review at photodo

"Build quality-wise this 50mm lens is pretty typical of Nikon's higher-end consumer offerings. The lens barrel is constructed from high quality textured plastic and a distance scale window with an embossed gold surround featured on the top. Weighing only 280g, it isn't a heavy or large lens.

The silent wave focusing motor is certainly very quiet, but focusing speeds are noticeably slower than with . . . read more

Nikon AF-S Nikkor 50mm f/1.4G review at momentcorp

"Wide open the new Nikon AF-S 50mm 1.4 outperforms the AF version without a doubt. Both sharpness and contrast is way better. The auto focus is a tad slower though, not that the lens is slow on autofocus, but it is slower than the Nikon 50 f/1.4D. There is without a doubt light fall-off / vignetting wide open, and to . . . read more
