The tradeoffs between F/1.8 and F/2 are basically non-existent though. Nobody is making F/1.8 and F/2 versions of the same FL; it's almost always one or the other.

I agree and there is even an exception to the rule: Pentax made a manual focus 55 mm in both f2 and f1.8 versions. The reason I have been told was that lenses that didn't perform well at f1.8 became f2 ones which had a slight change in the aperture mechanism.
