Thanks Bjorn and PhilDiggle. Yes, u guys are right. I believe I would get what I pay for. Thats why f/1.4 is much superior than f/1.8. PhilDiggle, I will be waiting for your images from f/1.8, plz do not forget to post them here when you get the lens. At this point, my next big target is either Sony 70-300mm G or sony 70-400mm SSM G and both of them are out of my reach. so, I am not dreaming about them
. I have already two nonsense kit lenses, got with the camera, which I do not use. I don't want to buy FF for at least next 2-3 years, I want its price to be down around $1000 or so, so that I can afford them very easily, it depends, I might also go for a very good APS-C in that price range if the FF is not that competitive, But no new DSLR until for next three years. First I decided to buy f/1.8 but after looking at their photographs I personally believe f/1.4 got something better inside than its younger sibling(f/1.
. Image quality is important for me. If f/1.8 gives me same IQ as my Sony DT 16-105mm provides, then the whole purpose of buying this lens would be meaningless and the $149 would be in waste. Sony DT 16-105mm gives me very good IQ, and I am very happy with this Lens.
