According to one website's MTF charts, the Sigma 30 is sharper than the Zeiss 24; not better . "Better" is subjective. I think the Zeiss is a much better lens; though, I do wish the Zeiss was not so expensive.

"Better" is subjective. I didn't say better, I said "technically better." I'm curious which category you find technically better in the Zeiss? Distortion? CA? Resolution?

It is common for slower primes to perform better, technically. Being wider and faster is what you're paying for with the Zeiss.
