Is the 50mm 1.4 worth twice the price of the 1.8?

Hi all,

I am considering getting the Nikon 50mm 1.4 for low light indoor portraits - but is the 1.4 that much more light than the 1.8 - to justify almost twice its costs? Are there any other quality differences that would justify the more expensive lens?

Thanks,
Wm
