I just purchased a D700 last month, and have the following lenses specifically for it: 105mm F2.8 macro, 70-300mm zoom. I also have 2 DX kit zoom lenses from my D80 (18-55 and 55-200), and the DX 18-200mm zoom. I want a 50mm lens, but I am having a hard time choosing between the 1.8D, 1.4D, or 1.4G. Obviously, you get what you pay for, and the 1.4G would be the "best" lens, but for a non-professional like me, will there be that great of a difference in the quality and sharpness? My pocketbook is hurting a bit after the D700 and 2 lenses, but I don't want to get the 1.8D just to save some $$ now and regret it later.

I basically take shots of my grandchildren, landscapes, and a lots of travel shots.

Thanks!!
