Ouch $600 for a 50f1.8 these days. As to lack of perfection I saw two areas in the review; high vignetting for a 50 and bokeh fringing. We could argue that other 50's have similar or worse vignetting but at $600 I would expect a bit of over-engineering in the diameter to reduce it a bit. I mean it isn't like they have to worry about weight since the lens already weighs 420g. I mean it is a nice lens but I can buy a lot of guppies for $600. Btw bit surprise the price/performance is 5 stars given the price - or maybe things are just expensive in nikon world.
