More important, however, is the superb center-to-edge definition the 50mm F/1.4 offers even at full aperture. This lens is actually sharper than most slower normal lenses when they are stopped down!
No wonder the 50mm f1.4 enjoys a truly legendary reputation among knowledgeable photographers throughout the world. As one test report put it. The superb 50mm F/1.4 Nikkor should be owned by every Nikon and Nikkormat user.
