The differences I read:
50 F/1.4 (SAL50F14):
6 lens groups / 7 elements
filter diameter: 55mm
works on APS-C and FF cameras
includes a hood.
50 F/1.8 (SAL50F18SAM):
5 lens groups / 6 elements
filter diameter: 49mm
Smooth Autofocus Motor (SAM)
DT lens (only on APS-C camera)
does not come with a hood.
From what I read, unlike SSM, SAM has not received many positive reviews yet.
