I got this lens a little over a week ago. It's the 50mm 1.4D. That's not the new 50mm 1.4. I was so excited to get it but I'm feeling very frustrated now. I can use it on the Auto settings fine (yawn). But not fabulous shots really. Haven't noticed that it's THAT much better in low light or gives me less blur off the tripod (which is what I like to do since I primarily chase children). But when I put it on A (aperture priority) and keep it open wide like 1.4-2.. I cannot seem to make enough adjustments to make the exposure even CLOSE to decent. They're usually very blown out and a purple tint. What am I doing? I feel so stupid. Back in my college days I could shot manually and even with some of my other lenses it seems easier to get a good exposure. Please help me... Ever since going from the D40x to the D7000 I feel like I need a degree just to understand this thing. I'd upload picture examples but every time I try, the pictures won't upload. Ugh, technical troubles everywhere!
