It looks like the 35mm f1.8 is perfect on all levels given lenstip review (though dpreview was harsh and unfair) but I still don't see fans of it.

If you have one do you recommend it or it's better to hold on the 24-70 f4 till a better allrounder (28 to 35mm) prime lens comes out?

Perhaps you don't see the love for the 35 1.8S because of reviews like Dpreview's.  I trust this site's reviews more than Lenstip. If you don't already own and shoot the 35 1.8S, how can you say the review is unfair? The 24-70 f4's only is that it isn't 2.8. But Nikon has that covered...if you want to spend over $2000. I believe that in 2021 we will see 1.2 primes besides the 50 we will see in 2020. you could wait until then.
