35 f1.4 is a classic. The core design of lens elements is 100 years old. It flares (i like it :)), it has an exact amount of contrast and sharpness, a lot of micro-contrast etc. I don't think 35 f2 is a bad lens.. but totally different. It renders in a much more modern way. I like it too but I prefer classic over modern (35 f2 has a lot of distortion, more contrast etc - not so dreamy look for portrait). and I find 35 f1.4 fast enough with X-H1..

No offence, but there's nothing here that couldn't be shot with the F2, you have clearly processed them to your liking - I don't get why people show processed images in defense of any lens - this is the look YOU achieved, and the results are nice, but either of these lenses could do this
