I too have a 35 1.4 G, but only used it on a D700 and D750. In the meantime I bought a used Zeiss 35 f2, which I love for its clarity in the f2 - f2.8 range, but prefer the 35 1.4 G for its resolution corner to corner espc. when shooting landscapes. For me, this is a lens with a very well balanced performance. Sure the Sigma is punchier wide open, but to my taste it had harsh bokeh in too many photos I saw and a kind of clinical color reproduction. The 24 1.4g on the other hand doesn´t meet my expectations when it comes to sharpness (D750!). I will put it up for sale soon.
