To my eyes the Nikon at 2.8 is sharper than Zeiss At 2.0

Also Nikon looks sharper at f4

And I see no point to carry the Zeiss prime  when you have the Nikon zoom.

I don’t think so. But Nikon should make something similar, with AF. The Zeiss looks like a benchmark for speed/sharpness ratio and across the frame quality/speed. Use the loupe tool to compare 2.8/2.8 for this part of the frame. At f4 the difference is academic. how relevant in practice is a question. Otherwise apples and oranges. The prime is 600g lighter and much shorter. The zoom is several primes in one, AF and VR.
