Sony Zeiss 35 & 55mm FE lenses vs Sigma 35mm f1.4

I currently have the Sigma 35mm 1.4, albeit on a Canon 5D2, and it's a real joy to use. It's my favourite lens. I will buy the much smaller and lighter Sony A7R but to do so I will have to sell my lovely Sigma and the Canon 5D2 plus more Nikon cameras and lenses.
The report has convinced me that although the Sony Zeiss 35mm 2.8 is not quite as good as the Sigma 35mm, although it is nearly as sharp as the lovely Sigma, it fulfils the brief to keep my equipment small and light (120 gms vs 665 gms lenses only!). I enjoy working with a tiltable screen on a tripod as most light tripods don't reach my eye level. The Sony Zeiss lenses are weatherproof too. On my wish list will be the Sony Zeiss 55mm 1.8 and who knows, maybe later the Sigma 35mm 1.4 for special occasions!
Thanks again for a very helpful report.
