Nikon 35mm 1.8 FX vs. Sigma 35 1.4 Samples

So I've been wondering about this new Nikon 35mm 1.8 FX lens and seen all the discussion here about how it compares to the Sigma 35 1.4. While I don't necessarily think that's an apples to apples comparison, I've been interested too, so I went down to the local photo shop today and they let me shoot a couple frames outside on my D600. I've posted the shots below. These were all handheld while resting on a fence, focus on the window surrounded by white on the far building. Not the greatest shots, or a scientific test by any stretch, but just thought I'd share for what it's worth. At 100% on my retina display, the Nikon looks to certainly holds its own.
