This might be your answer. Sigma just announced the 50 mm f/1.4 Art lens. If the MTF plots prove to be correct, this will be as good a lens as the 35mm.

Indeed, Sigma has provided the answer. This one seems to be worth waiting for. And, hopefully, it is a wake-up call for Nikon.

Wide angle also leaves things to be desired.
