I have the 50 1.4 and the 35 1.4. I find the 35 more useful since it is a bit wider. I think it is sharper from 1.4-2.2 as well in addition to having better contrast and color rendition. I want to point out that I also have the 50 1.8 (nifty fifty, plastic fantastic). Believe it or not, the 50 1.8 is sharp as hell wide open. Granted the biggest missing factor of this lens is a harsher bokeh, but I really like it sometimes. The lens is actually being loaned out right now to a friend, but I have to tell you for the 80 dollars I paid for the thing is totally worth it!!
