Re: 35 mm 1.4 which would you get?

Big difference when a lens is tack sharp. I thought my 24G was sharp till I put the sigma on my d800 and it wasn't even a contest. Yes different focal lengths but good grief the 24G is nikon's show piece in the wide prime realm.

I also like the rendering and microcontrast from the sigma. If you ever shot a zeiss lens then you know what I'm talking about. I also wanted to stick to nikon for transitioning zooms to primes. But sigma just made it so affordable to achieve the look that I had in my mind when shooting a 35.

Like I said, this sigma really put all my nikon lenses to shame in terms of sharpness. I have the holy trinity, 24G and 85D for what its worth.
