Here in the Uk it costs 80 (roughly) for the f1.8 yet it costs an extra 100 on top of that for the f1.4

Do you think its worth spending the extra 100 to get the f1.4 or do you think the f1.8 is worth getting to save the money?

If you can afford it, buy the f/1.4. The f/1.8 is sharp enough, but bokeh is strange sometimes, it's difficult to focus manually, and it gives a distinct feeling of plastic. In addition, the new f/1.4 has AF-S, which means that it will focus faster and less noisy, and it will autofocus on the D40/60.
