The nikon 24mm f1.4G is one of the best lenses on the market. Are you comparing its performance at f1.4 to the 24-70mm at f2.8?

They sure didn't seem overly impressed with the 24mm f.14, the 24-70 @ 24 looks to produce the equal of this prime when both are at F2.8. It sure doesn't appear to be MUCH better like you continue to preach. At F4 the zoom is better. And the 24-70 is cheaper than this prime is. The prime is 620g the zoom in 900g so yes it is lighter and faster but is also a single focal length.
