At f8 the 35/1.8’s sample is cleaner, a tad sharper and has more contrast. You will see the difference in fine detail like colour transitions, subtle detail separation and the like. The prime at f1.8 better than the zoom at f4.5 is about the summary here. You see more axial CA in the 2.8 shot because the black detail is on a much brighter white compared to wide open. Nothing looking abnormal to me. It’s nice compact inexpensive lens sharper at 2.8 than Tokina 35/2.8. Some zooms can give it a tough competition at smaller apertures, 16-85 at 35mm for example. Samples of this one not too shabby either.
