I thought about this. On the plus, it's also a 72mm filter ring, so that works nicely. It's also slightly less expensive than the 35 although the issue's monstrous. I don't think I want to haul it around.
I just did the numbers. I regularly haul around my DA15, 21 and Sigma 30/1.4. Those 3 mass ~750g. The. Sigma comes in a shade over 800g, so not a huge increase. I could choose either set depending on what I want to shoot. In fact, I usually have my 40 too, bringing the total to 840g.

If you carry the Sigma 35/1.4 and a DA21, those two come in at 800g also. The 35/1.4 is 665g, so not really much smaller.

Not very scientific or professionally done, but it shows the point

Looks like there is a lot of metal in this lens!
Also, it is hard to show, but the part on which the hood attaches is plastic.
