I've owned both the 1.4G (two different copies) and the 1.8G, used both extensively on the D700, D7000, and D800. I sold the 1.4G and I never looked back.

Ok guys, asking for your help once again..... what do you all think? Besides the 2/3rds stop, and a prospective durability question I've seen raised on one review, is the f/1.4 worth 3x the cost of the f/1.8? Or, is the gold band at this point merely a status thang? I guess the main issue I am concerned with is increased glare, which nano-coating does nicely address.... What do y'all think?
