Which new 35 are you looking forward to? 35/1.4GM vs Sigma 35/2 C

I had been looking to buy the Samyang 35/1.8 - and still might - in the absence of a reasonably sized and optically excellent 28 (not looking to argue the merits of the 28/2 here, it is immaterial for this question). I see that Sony should be getting ready to release a new 35/1.4 GM, and Sigma a 35/2 C.

Assuming for a second that both lenses are optically excellent with fast AF and great bokeh and colors, and that the Sigma is 2/3rds the weight and a less than half the price of the Sony (estimating them at 1299 for the Sony and 599 for the Sigma, I think the Sony might be more), which would interest you more?
