It does appear that the Sigma 35mm f/1.4 is a fantastic lens, the best they've ever made, but 24mm and 35mm are not near enough to be the same or interchangeable.

Yeah, I am coming more and more to realize that. I was set on the 35 given it's brilliant performance, but am leaning more towards the 28 1.8g. A 20 or 24 would be a good fit for me, but the 1.4G is out of the price range I am willing to pay, I want something faster than 2.8 (shooting in light starved conditions, 5 digit ISO's at 2.8) and Sigma's 20mm 1.8 doesn't seem to offer a lot beyond center sharpness.

So I am another guy hoping Sigma releases an art line 24 1.4 soon...
