I actually want to know everyone's thoughts as I don't plan to keep them both.

I really really love the f1.4 and not minding the slow and hunting focusing, but my daughter is starting to learn to walk now and I reckon the f2 will give me more keepers than the f1.4, so.... I don't really know. Although I have the 23 f2 and 90 f2 which are snappy (giving myself reason to keep the slowpoke 35 f1.4 haha)

And yeah, the distortion is really there for the f2.

Personally, I wouldn't make this decision using test images. I'd take pictures of your main subject—your toddler daughter—and see which you prefer.

I have a three year old, and after testing both I found that I preferred the 35 1.4. On my X-Pro3, the focusing is very fast. And I think the extra stop of light is meaningful. I take a lot of family pictures in low light.
