>I have seen more than one review where the reviewers were
>inclined to recommend the 1.8G over the 1.4G for everything
>except the extra 2/3 stop. Why would you jump to the 1.4G?

Charlie - I owned the 1.4G in the past (sold it to use the money for a vacation, of all things), and the 1.8G's bokeh in some situations is busier than I like. I looked over my images of both in LR, and definitely liked the bokeh of the big brother more.

I am not taking anything away from the 1.8G, as it is a very good performer, but with the rebate making the 1.4G more affordable, I just felt like it needed to return to my bag.

I haven't sold the 1.8G yet, so who knows -- I might keep both.
