Nikon 28mm 1.8G vs Sigma 35mm 1.4

I am considering these 2 lenses since their prices are at the similar ballpark . $699 for Nikon vs $899 for Sigma. I have a D800 and plan to use the lenses for landscape and environment portrait of my family, pretty much a walkaround lens for me when I am outside.

I think Nikon wins on price and nano-coating, while Sigma wins on build quality, larger (about 0.5 stops) aperture. I heard lots of good things about both lenses and the Sigma (Canon copy) has a great review by DPReview. If you want to pick one lens, which one will you choose? Thanks for your inputs and happy new year!
