Very similar IQ to the new 24/1.4 AFS sharp contrasty and nice Bokeh.
AF is on the slow side for my liking, it's an ultra small SWM and a plastic gear box, only real drawback...

Lovely bokeh, contrasty and sharp. Quite excellent flare resistance but not perfect.
Here's a a couple of examples:

What I don't like is the weight of the lens, but once one sees the pictures this minor negative side is soon forgotten.
AF is not super fast, but I haven't missed any shots because of it. Tracking of moving subjects (running children) works without any problems.
I earlier used 35/2 AF-D. Even though 35/1.4 AF-S costs ~5 times of 35/2 AF-D, there is so big difference in IQ that I find the high price justified.

It's the first time I've used a 35mm prime, so am slowly getting the hang of it on my D300.
This shot was taken using f2.5 @ 1/6th, whilst braced against a tree trunk:
So far I would say I am having to get used to focussing more carefully. My other initial impression is that, whilst the options for subject isolation are impressive @ f1.4, the lens shows a lot of purple fringing round point sources when wide open. Have been experimenting with removing this in PP.
Here's an example before correction:
