50mm FA Macro vs. D FA Macro

How does the 50mm FA Macro compare to the newer D FA Macro?

The FA is better built, the DFA is lighter. Some who own both say the FA is slightly sharper, and I can testify that it's the sharpest lens I've ever seen. Ever. Ever. The DFA has different coatings.

In real life, it would probably be almost impossible to spot differences between shots from those two lenses.
