Hi all I have an opportunity to pick up a hardly used less than 2 month old 50mm 1.4G for 375$ I have been hearing so many good things about the "Newer" 50 mm 1.8G and its a couple hundred dollars cheaper. I am currently using a D7000 but will be moving to Full Frame D-800 in the next few weeks . My interests are varied when it comes to photography - about the only thing i havent tried yet is portraiture. If you look at my profile my lens selection is quite varied - I have the 2.8 zoom trinity , 35 1.8 (DX) 105 micro 2.8 and the Sigma 150-500 So i cover a lot of ground. My thoughts being - a 50 mm for a simple ( I hate the term "Walk Around Lens") when i want to go light.

Any thoughts of 1 versus the other ?? IQ , etc Seems to me they should both be excellent lenses.

Thanks in advance
