Can Sigma 35/1.4 also trouble the waters for Nikon 24/1.4?

I know the lens smashes Nikon in price, but as I asked before, how's the build quality (sigma)?

On the surface, build quality looks excellent.

It doesn't have a 10 year recyclable symbol on the side - this is an all metal lens. The lens hood is plastic but sturdy and twists on with a reassuring click. Manual focus is quite good bordering on excellent in my view - not loose at all, perhaps slightly stiff but I'd rather that, and no play. I'm coming to this lens (and the D800) after years using *only* manual focus Zeiss lenses.

It looks good and inspires confidence.

Would I want to drop it? Nope.

10 year warranty for Canadian buyers, yay!

Thanks for the feedback. Looks like I may give it a look.  Now I'll just have to decide if I still want Nikon's 28mm 1.8G or this Sigma 35mm.

Oh, and since I'm in the U.S. I wonder what that warranty would be?
