I do not own any of the 6 lenses, but from looking at the comparisons presented, I'm not sure why anyone would get anything but the Sigmas.

+1. Honestly, if the $1,700 Nikon lens produced the sample images we've seen from the Sigma, and vice versa, nobody would try to argue for buying the Sigma for anything but budget reasons.

I get the impression that people have taken negatively to this lens just because they can't afford it, or because Nikon has chosen to charge a high price for it. honestly, just buy the cheaper lens if price is what rules you.

I don't mean to be disrespectful but these vague claims of bokeh and rendering advantages of Nikon and Zeiss 35mm and 50mm lenses reminds me of astrology or homeopathy talk.

Not at all. Homeopathy is complete boloney in scientific terms. The lovely bokeh of a lens can be shown, and repeated and validated with evidence..
