Default canon 50mm 1.8 vs. Nikon 50mm 1.8d

Hello, I recently purchased the t1i and was debating between these two lenses (canon 50mm 1.8 and the Nikon 50mm 1.8d) for some video work coming up. I would normally just stick with the canon, but since the t1i video mode is 'auto'd' I was thinking of the nikkor only because of the manual f-stops (and then I could stop using the 'twist' f-stop trick with the canon). I've seen some reviews online that say the nikkor is a little softer than the canon until f4, but was wondering if anyone had any opinions to sway me either way? Oh, also, I have an FD 50mm 1.8 lens from an AE-1 that I have, and was wondering if it's even worth getting an adapter for it? I've heard some bad things. Thanks.

the nikon will not work on the canon. They are different mounts and system.

sorry didn't post above. If I went with the nikon I'd also purchase the adaptor to work with the t1i.
