Nikkor 50mm f/1.4 G
Aperture – 5.6, Shutter Speed – 1/60s, ISO – 200
Nikkor 70-200mm f/2.8 G
Aperture f/4, Shutter 1/60s, ISO 6400
I am primarily trying to compare the 35mm / 50mm focal length. Not so much my Nikkor 35mm f/1.8 G vs Nikkor 50mm f/1.4 G. Though I would at some point want to compare my Nikon D300 w/35mm vs my Nikon D700 w/50mm, but that’s for another day ;~)
This first comparison is at a Cafe. Indoor and the subject in relative close proximity. the pix on the left column are 35mm and the right 50mm. The viewing area really doesn’t seem to be significantly different.
I personally own a Prime Lens, Nikkor 50mm f/1.4 G, but I have borrowed & rented a wide range of them over the years and they are simply the best.
Here are a few samples.
Nikkor 85mm f/1.8D (DX Format)
Nikkor 105mm f/1.4 (FX Format)
I really should have gone for X1D with the 90mm vs D300 with the 85mm but this is what I had so this is what I got to try wtih.
