That's pretty normal for just about any fast lens especially f1.4 lenses. Some control it better than others but that's what the software correction is for. Keep in mind these are shooting extreme's. Just about any lens will exhibit this in very high contrast situations like thus.
Yup; even kit lenses do this at relatively tiny apertures. And as fast 35mm lenses aren't easy to make, compromises have to be made. In this case, especially on Nikon, you might try renting the Sigma 35/1.4 Art to see how it compares to your usage. The Sigma will be sharper and likely better corrected for the artifacts that you're seeing. Note that the AF may or may not be cooperative, and that you may or may not prefer the rendering over the Nikon, but as evidenced by just the shots in this forum, it's definitely worth a look!
