Besides the heft, is the 50mm 1.4 worth the extra cost over the 1.8

The problem thats I had Sigma called it "front to back focus shift." Basically, when you're trying to focus something that's near the minimum focus distance, it front focuses. Then, when you're trying to focus near infinity, it back focuses. Micro adjustment doesn't help. If the lens in under warranty, you can get new firmware to fix this problem.
