There are no big differences there. The Sigma A 1.4/35 fares the best and the worst is the Nikkor AF-S 35 mm f/1.4G ED. What’s interesting, the slower and cheaper Nikkor AF-S 35 mm f/1.8G ED is better than its more expensive brother but it is worse than the Canon 2/35 IS. That level of distortion anyway shouldn’t worry you at all and you can ignore it. Apart from that correcting distortion is easy as it doesn’t entail a significant narrowing of the field of view.
