Which is considered the preferred version of this lens? The 50mm 1.4 made in Japan or the 50mm 1.4 D made in China?

I have a Nikkor 50mm 1.4 D that I bought back in 2006 and I absolutely adore.

My Father has the same lens from 2 decades earlier (not a D) and has just offered it to me as he is no longer shooting. Which should I keep?

Thanks for any guidance.
