    but its not in production anymore right..
    I've had both, will go for the 1.4 version anytime. The 1.7 is just overrated imo, 50/1.4 is overall a better lens w/ better color rendering and nicer smoother bokeh.

    It was never better. Its just a bit sharper at f1.7 than a 50/1.4 at f1.7 (very little diff actually); the same for the 50/2. But they are obviously slower and you can never force a f1.7 of f2 to shoot at f1.4

    The recent price hike on the FA50/1.4 has pushed its price up as well. For that price and inconvenience to find one, I'd rather just get a 50/1.4 or stick to my MF ones.
