And I gave you the opportunity to make a snarky remark.

One of the things that has never been shown with the f/1.8G is whether points of lights at the corners when shot at f/1.8 are pinpoints or triangle shape. In my case I needed a lens that would provide pinpoints, or close it it, when wide open. If the f/1.8G does that then yes, I could have spent $1k less. If the lights are triangle shape, well, it was money well spent.

Also, having 77mm filters (no adapters needed for expensive 77mm filters I already own) and a metal filter mount helps with the f/1.4G as opposed to the 67mm plastic filter threads on the f/1.8G.
