He bought the 1.8G, not the 1.4G.  So we're back at halves, the 1.8G is half the cost of the Sigma 1.4 .

Whoops, my bad...Anyway I Just checked and perhaps not supprisingly the Sigma is sharper at every aperture than the 1.8 G.

That is not the whole story.

While the Sigma is marginally sharper in the centre, the Nikon is much sharpe everywhere else. The Sigma may be better suited for portraiture, but the Nikon appears to be the better all round lense at a much lower price.

And the conclusion of the FotoZone review concurs

Although I do understand from your forum ID that it is difficult for you to form an impartial view about this.

Whoa...That's a low blow!  My Dpreview name refers to my Sigma DSLR's, not my lenses.  I am actually very impartial as I don't use Sigma lenses on my Sigma DSLR's (well I do have one, a 14mm f3.5) but otherwise I only use Canon lenses, Nikon lenses, Carl Zeiss lenses and many more.
