Canon keeps up with Zeiss pretty good, or rather Zeiss is trailing Canon? I don't know, they are so close :D

Both lenses are around 1900 EUR in Europe, incl. VAT. The Canon would be my clear favourite lens: it has autofocus, the f1,4 performance is better and it´s smaller. If there is not a huge difference in the Bokeh, the Zeiss will have a hard time.
Photography is painting with light. A great photo creates a strong feeling, i.e. "I would love to have been there, in that very magic moment."

Unless you are shooting mirrorless, strictly shooting on a tripod, or have an interchangeable focusing screen, I'd take the one with AF every day of the week.

Me too. I love Zeiss lenses, but Canon is sharper, lighter, cheaper and above all, has blazing fast AF :)

Indeed. And we all need a 50/1.4 and 85/1.4 that would be as good as this 35 II.
Hopefully the 85/1.4 is coming with ADC on sensor blue stuff in it and IS.

And does it take 4K and have dual iris? In case one went rogue :D
