My question from others is, is the performance in terms of sharpness of this Pentax 35mm f2.4 better than Sigma 30mm f1.4 (not Art version)

By the time the Sigma is at f/2.4 it's pretty much as sharp as the 35/2.4. Below that it's not so good and focus is very hit-and-miss, so despite being a stop and a half faster it's not easy to get a real advantage from that extra speed, plus the Sigma is a lot more expensive and heavier too.

Many years ago I chose the DA 35mm Limited over the Sigma as a standard prime. A few years later I got the Sigma for a good price but, while I got some enjoyment out of it while I had it, I sold it on for the reasons above.

If you want a good 35mm prime for Pentax that's faster than f/2.8 then the HD FA 35mm f/2 is superior to both the Sigma and the 35/2.4. Stop down just to f/2.2 and it's sharper than the 35/2.4 wide open, it is also better at giving a 3D feel to photos. It can often be had for a good price in sales, so not that black Friday has passed, your best bet might be to wait until after christmas to get a good price on it.

I own this lens and I confirm what's been said here, the price/quality ratio is very good!
