Any thoughts on how it compares to 50mm 1.4 in terms of build, IQ and bokeh?
I have come to the realization that I MUST have a walk around lens with FTM.
I am on a very tight budget atm, but if the 50mm 1.4 clearly outperforms the 40mm in any of the above areas I think it is the one for me
Only reason for me to not get the 40mm regardless, is that my budget keeps me in the aps-c range and I am afraid that 2.8 will make a big difference in terms of VF brightness for MF comparing to 1.4
If anyone has both I'd also love a comment on the focus ring gearing and action
Edit: Forgot to mention that the pricedifference seems to be alot less in Denmark where I will be buying.
40mm 2.8 : 300$
50mm 1.4 : 455$
Do the lens prices usually drop in a manner similar to what is seen on bodies?
