The 50/1.8 goes for about $65 used in EX condition. The marginal extra speed of the 1.4 is really not worth the extra $. Also, consider a good used 35-70/2.8 to fill that large gap in your lens arsenal. I just saw one on ebay or photo.net or Nikonians for about $150 that appeared to be in very usable condition. In EX condition they go for a bit less than $300.
