I would say you need to make this particular decision based SOLELY on which focal length is more what you typically shoot, or need. I don't have the Nikon 28 - 28 isn't a primary length for me, but it looks pretty good. 35mm is a key focal length for me, so I've got both the Sigma and Nikon 35/1.4G; of the two 35's, for landscape I would consider the Sigma definitely superior; it's got better edge to edge sharpness at those sorts of distances.


I agree with the strategy to pick the lens based on focal length vs. brand. I used to own a great 28 (1.4) and replaced it with the 35 1.4. The 28 was perfect for me when I shot DX. I have the 24 1.4 as well which has become one of the first lenses I reach for when I'm shooting land/cityscape.
