Actually, you are right, in a way. The 1.8G is very very good indeed, but I do think that the 1.4 is a little disappointing; particularly given the cost.

Interestingly, your most used lens list is almost the same as mine except that I use the Nikkor 35/1.4, having bought it long before the Sigma came out. I love love LOVE the 35, but it's not the most critically sharp lens out there. Awesome look to it though.

But it's not that the 1.4G is bad rather the 1.8G is so good.   The 1.4G is probably better when shooting into the sun with the nanocoating.

My most used primes on the D800e:

24/1.4G, Sigma 35/1.4, 85/1.8G, 200/2
