I have a 1.4G and bought the 1.8G recently to try and save some money. After all what I read I thought if I can get ~1k back in my pocket, why not! However after using it for several days alongside the 1.4G I decided to keep the 1.4G because of focus speed, contrast and overall IQ. While the 1.8G was very good overall, something about the images from the 1.4G made them look more alive/contrasty, to me. As for sharpness @1.4, I find it sharp enough.

Again this is my opinion of it, and to me it's worth the difference. Others may disagree and this is fine since each one of us values the lens' aspects differently.
