a meaningful review

i bought the f1.8G after reading this review + others


The f1.8 focuses faster, is lighter, and is half price of the f1.4

the bokeh might favor the f1.4 slightly but not enough to sway me to it

the extra 2/3 stop might be useful to some but with the D600 I can safely dial up the ISO

Hope this helps
