Nikon AF-S 50mm F1.4G vs. Nikon Z 50mm f/1.8S for Nikon Z6

1 week 5 days ago #714250 by iKokomo
I just upgraded to a Nikon Z6! :) I also got the Nikon Mount Adapter FTZ to adapt all of my older F Glass. Here is my question. I am looking for a 50mm lens. How does the Nikon AF-S 50mm F1.4G compare with the Nikon Z 50mm f/1.8 S? I can get a used 1.4G for quite a bit cheaper than the f/1.8 S. Is the Z lens that much better even though it is slower and more expensive? Is it worth the extra cost?

Because of the extra glass required to correct aberrations on a faster lens, the slower lens will generally out perform the faster one ALL OTHER THINGS BEING EQUAL.  I can't say whether or not all other things would be equal between the two but I would base the decision on whether or not you will benefit meaningfully with 2/3 stop extra speed.
