Do the lisp lovers ever miss compile-time type-checking? All the programming language theorists at university love OCaml and Haskell because they are really into type systems for preventing errors in code. But lisp/Clojure seems to be more popular outside the university.

Could someone that has used both statically and dynamically typed functional languages comment on what they liked and disliked from both experiences? I am interested in exploring a functional language because they seem to have cool ideas in them, but I'm not sure what road to start down.
