"Nikon 24mm 1.4 Worth it?"

Hello all,
I am in the process of purchasing a go to prime lens. With the type of photography I do (mainly landscape), the decision has come down to a 24 mm focal length to go along with my D600. I've rented the 14-24 and it is simply too bulky.

The obvious prime choice seemed to be the NIkon 24mm, 2.8 as it is light and tiny for hiking and has decent reviews and great value. Then I came across the 1.4.... From all accounts this is a spectacular lens. My main hesitation is physical size not to mention the price. If the lens is really that good, I could sacrifice on both.

Now that it has been out for a while, I would like some feedback on this lens. Also, is there another 24 mm (auto or manual focus) I should consider as an alternative?

In advance, I thank you for your time and attention.
