Can I suggest you go and try one locally before you buy !!  Beat them around the head for a reasonable price. Wouldnt want you to go through what I just did.

From what I know, except from the additional 2/3 of a stop and better construction, it has a bit better bokeh, a bit faster AF and a bit better flare resistance, all mainly because of the better glasses used.

Thanks for that.  I will look at the 1.8G a bit closer, because it's considerably cheaper than the 1.4G.  But on the other hand, I don't have any 1.4 lenses.  Difficult choice, I think.

Although I know it is a lot cheaper for us here to order from the US, I do buy my lenses locally, but I order smaller gear from B&H in NY.
