    There is also this thread where it's discussed against the Sigma 50 ART: http://www.getdpi.com/forum/nikon/51...-opne-get.html

    And my summary comment from that thread with what I think is the relevant purpose of the 58/1.4:
    "The new Sigma 50 ART lens is a winner for a fast 50, period. But the Nikkor is a 58... Those extra 8mm may not sound like much, but they make a world of difference if you're a portrait shooter instead of a street shooter; the difference between ever so slightly slightly bulbous noses and flatter pert noses on a typical head-shot."

    That said, I am thinking about adding the 58 to my arsenal just to have it as an alternative...
