No. The 50 f1.8D is just as sharp and the slight difference in aperture is not even noticeable.

I initially purchased a 50 f1.4D and then tried a friend's f1.8. I ran back to the store and exchanged my 50 f1.4D for the 50 f1.8D. They're almost the same lens!

Yes. This lens is completely compatible with the D80. Autofocus and exposure both work very well. Unlike the AFS version, you must flip a switch to go into manual focus with this lens. On the other hand, (at least on a D3S) I found this lens to focus faster than the AFS version. I have used this lens on a D80 and it is great.

On D3000 you can use this lens only in manual focus mode,
but AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.4G will support your D3000 in auto focus, because it have internal Silent Wave Motor (SWM).
Auto focus on D3000 works with all Nikkor lenses, which started from "AF-S NIKKOR ... or
"AF-I NIKKOR

If you want to use this lens on a D3000 you will have to achieve focus manually since the camera body doesn’t have the internal motor for AF.

Nikon offers two types of autofocus digital camera bodies: those with a built-in focus drive motor and those which require a lens to have a motor. Cameras such as the D40 do not have a focus motor in it so they require the lens to have the focusing motor – an “AF-S” lens. While these bodies can use a lens with no focus motor (an “AF” lens) you would have to manually turn the focus ring to bring the subject in to sharp focus.

You may want to try the AF-S version of this lens.

It is a good lens and as Joe says creates nice bokeh. You have to be very careful though when using a lens like this with a low aperture, as it is easy to not get the focus not quite correct when focusing (for portrait mostly focus on the eyes) and this can ruin a photo.

Yes, I am a pro shooter and have a D800; you get full functionality.

As is noted, there is no need to use the aperture ring, all controls (except of course manual focus) are made from the camera.

How does this one differ/compare to the Nikkor 50mm f/1.8D ? What's the difference? (Besides price obviously!!)

I need a new lens, and was debating between this and the 50mm f/1.8D. Was just wondering what ones best. Also, what I really need it for is family pictures, so which one would be best for that? And does it work with the D90? Thanks :)

They are basically the same lens; both work equally well -- even when shooting in pitch black.

I initially bought a 50 f1.4D, but after trying a co-workers 50 f1.8D decided to return it.

They're both just as sharp and the difference is so microscopic that it really isn't worth the money.
