Re: 50mm 1.4G vs. 50mm 1.8G - What about image character?

I have the Nikkor 50 f/1.4 G and have loved it.  My principle reason for choosing it over the 1.8 was that its diaphragm has 9 blades as opposed to 7 in the 1.8.  Everything I read about lens technology said bokeh would be better with a 9-blade diaphragm.  I have not been disappointed at all.
