It helps to get better light/exposure on the test chart... a quick correction in PS Curves helps, see attached...

Clearly at f1.8 the corners are softer, but for portraiture that's desirable so no worries there. As for the centre, Well there's definitely a difference between f1.8 and f4 but I don't see it being all that problematic. No lens is at its best wide open and if this one at f4 is acceptable to your friend I'd say that the f1.8 sample is relatively acceptable too.

To my eye the corners in the AF version are slightly sharper than MF
