The main reason you're buying 1.8 lens is to use it around f/1.8 or f/2 range. Sure you can say that faster (usually more expensive lens) has better image quality and construction, but if you stop it down to f/8 - f/16 most of the time, I doubt the difference is really worth the money.

I'd say that the probably best selling f/1.8 Nikkor is the 50/1.8. For this lens, I'd disagree with most of your statement...
