Cheap alternative to 35mm 1.4g

I have traveled Europe with a 24-70/2.8 and now want some light lenses to carry around. I don't think i'll be selling the "brick" due to its versatility in travel and events, but it was too much to carry around for just a night out, or a small trip with friends. I already have the 85 1.4d (thinking of changing to 85 1.8g for weight and sharpness), so wanted a 35mm FL.

option 1:
go with 35/2 and deal with its bokeh and faults due to older design

option 2:
go with 35/1.8g and deal with heavy vignetting

option 3:
go with the new 28/1.8g and deal with the slightly wider FL/possible distortion.

option 4:
whatever off brand I could use, please suggest me some lenses!

Thanks for your help in advance everybody!
