I have had both of these lenses.  The 1.8g is a very nice lens for very little money.  It can compare in sharpness with the 1.4g but it looses in focus speed, build, colors, contrast, and flare resistance.  These are shot at 1.4

Hi J2,

Thank you for those examples. Very nice results!  For me, it must be a balance between IQ and cost.  Although I accept that the bokeh obtained with the 1.4 is absolutely beautiful, the significant price difference compared to the 1.8 is not worth it for me.
