Do you need the 1.4 as oppossed to the 1.8? The difference is only 2/3 of a stop. Do you shoot wide open a lot? Just curious that's all. The 1.8 is far faster focussing.

The only difference AFAIK is a "D" has an aperature ring and transmits distance for the flash.

Remember, it's not the CPU that's in your camera that makes great images, it's the one located about 4" behind the viewfinder that does.
