Sharpness on a 35mm lens

Zeiss Distagon T 35mm F/1.4 ZF.2

Sigma 35mm F1.4 DG HSM

Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 35mm f/1.4G

I have read a lot or posts regarding the sharpness of these 3 lenses. Many rate the Sigma as the sharpest whilst others rate the Zeiss.

My question is when people refer to sharpness do the mean wide open between 5.6 - 1.4.?

At 5.6 to 16.0+ are all the lenses more or less as sharp or have I got the "wrong end of the stick"?
