One stop

A lens can be versatile wrt focal length control and/or wrt aperture control. If I buy a prime and give up focal length control, then I want it to provide most versatility wrt aperture control.

So, IMO, a f/2 lens is just too slow to justify the sacrifice of focal length versatility. The 28mm/2.8 is another story because it is so small, so with different use cases.

I didn't answer the poll because I've never tried the 35mm/2. The 1.4 is one stop faster, and not significantly larger, so I've bought this one. Just because f/1.4 justifies more as a prime. On a XT30, the AF is much faster than on my former XE3.
