Upgrade 35mm prime (for FF)

I currently own AF Nikkor 35mm f/2.0, that is my standard lens with D700.
I have now the chance to upgrade with AIS Nikkor 35mm f/1.4.
The lens is second hand, mint condition, and reasonable price.
I mainly shot landsacapes and urban life.
Most of my shots are made with aperture priority f/ 5,6 or f/8.0.
But sometime I shot full aperture f/2.0 (interiors & night shots)

I read a lot of good report about 35mm f/1.4 when mounted on FF digital (Bjorn Roselett).

I don't mind to focus by hand (I did it for decdes with reasonably good results).
But I'm not sure if this upgrade is worth.
For the same money I can find second hand Zeiss ZF 35mm f/2.0.
Please shares with me your experiences.
(please only direct experiences with FF cameras)
Thank-You in advance
