its all personal, but there is more to life then sharpness
The f1.4G is a Leica like lens in terms of draw

Also this seems to contradict many who are talking up the f1.8G:

http://www.the-digital-picture.com/Reviews/ISO-12233-Sample-Crops.aspx?Lens=791&Camera=614&Sample=0&FLI=0&API=2&LensComp=732&CameraComp=614&SampleComp=0&FLIComp=0&APIComp=3

The f1.4G seems to beat it across the board IMHO

Yeah that was the page I was looking at, what I was after was where Ming changed his mind according to John Brewton post above... this page is still recommending the 1.8G over the 1.4G.

Hence my confusion.
