Great sharpness, zero distortion, and reasonably good bokeh!
But where it falls through compared to the 50/1.8 Nikkors, is on the contrast!
Veiling flare is so prominent that it can even be seen on the histogram! Just the daylight sky (even with the sun behind you) is enough to cast a milky veil over your entire image.
Go for the Nikkor AF 50mm f/1.8D, which also cost next to nothing. It is multicoated and superior to the Series E, even though they have "the same optical design".
