They are within budget, $185 apart, the F costs more. Was thinking the F would have more fire due to CA and CH? The 1.71 has the exact perportions of my wife's ACA 1.03 f vs1 we are upgrading, that thing is a fireball.

G for me too! They will both be fireballs but you get more size for less money with the G.

I much prefer the F!

Based on the numbers and the fact they are both ACAs, personally I don't think you will see any real performance difference between the two.

I don't think you'll really see a difference in size either, with the F at 7.7mm and the G at 7.8mm.

But between the 2 videos (which I realize are magnified), I do see some sprinkles/inclusions on the G and none on the F.

And, since the current stone is an F, between these 2 ACAs which have such close specs and face-up size, I'd choose the colorless F rather than go with the near-colorless G.

[FWIW, having gone from colorless to near-colorless more than once (including the F-to-G jump), I did/do perceive a color difference and for me G is not as pleasing to my eye as F/colorless. YMMV.]
