Re: So you admit you were talking rubbish when you claimed the 1.8 slayed the 1.4 at all apertures

Oops. There you go again with the "can't afford" shot. Is that all you have? As I mentioned, your beloved 1.4 lens is not an expensive choice, and would be my second cheapest lens, if I had gone for it over the 1.8. I can tell that it was a very expensive purchase for you though.

Performance and availability are important, and when I bought the 1.8, the 1.4 was as common as hen's teeth in the UK.

It's nice that you lap up the marketing so willingly. I am simply pointing out for others that there is another choice which can be, and often is, better than the emperor's new clothes.
