Hi,

Your Sigma 35mm 1.4 is optically a very good and very sharp lens and of very recent design, the 31mm Pentax is a renowned lens but it's an older design, there are many reviews of this lens and it seems to be slighly less sharp fully open on larger sensors. Personally if you can live with the size of the Sigma I think it's the better option bearing in mind that you already own it and the 31 is one of the most expensive limiteds. With the money for the 31 you could buy yourself two other limiteds, say a DA21 and a DA15mm  or whatever takes your fancy!
