I owned the 1.4D for years, and it's wonderful -- but I shoot a lot of very low light performance stuff, which was a challenge with its relatively weak AF performance and lack of easy manual override. After trying both the 1.4G and the Sigma, I chose the Sigma, and it's been great. It has more contrast and saturation than the 1.4D at wide stops, and the faster low light AF and instant manual override is great.
I still have a soft spot for the 1.4D's cool, graceful tonality at wide stops, but the Sigma is a more flexible lens,...Show more →
Yes, that is similar to what I have concluded from early shots posted that compared all three lenses (1.8D, 1.8G and the 1.4G). The new 1.8G looks as sharp as the 1.4G (maybe better contrast as well) and sharper than the 1.8D. However, The bokeh does not look as good as the 1.4G, but better than the 1.8D. I currently have a 1.8D and thus the 1.8G looks like a great upgrade. But, coming from a 1.4, that would be a more difficult decision.
