I own the 1.4D. I should have bought the G. I have never ONCE in my life bought a fast lens and wished I'd chosen a sower one. Unfortunately, I have on several occasions purchased slower lenses and cursed myself for not buying faster lenses.
Buy what your pocket dictates. Or if getting paid, buy what the job demands.
