New 35mm on a D800 anyone???

So....I'm still hemming and hawing over the Sigma 35mm ART vs. the new Nikon 35mm 1.8G.

The Sigma is amazingly good, I know. But the Nikon is smaller and lighter.

So who's got both and what's the deal???

I own both.  If I had to take only one, I would have the Sigma.  It's a lot heavier, tho, but has an exceedingly sharp, unique rendering at close to medium range distances.

It's more important how an image looks as a thumbnail than how it looks at 100%.
