I don't have NEX system, and my newly ordered 24/2 will arrive this week, so I can not give you my hands-on opinion between the two. I do have one suggestion: if you keep both E & Alpha system, maybe amount 24/2.0 is the more versitile choice, for three reasons:

1) on your APSC body, it's a 35mm fast prime, perfect for many shooting situations.

2) if you ever get full frame one day, this is a perfect light weight landscape lens (that's why I am buying it).

3) with LA-EA2 adaptor, you will have faster auto focus on your NEX than the native E-mount lens. Yes the size is bigger than 24/1.8 but they all kind of too big anyway so you might as well get better performance.

On 2 - I have heard that the 24mm f2 is a rather heavy large lens?!
