I know there are differences on the two versions, but what are these optically?
I have the chance to buy a V1 on a price below 1600$ was wondering if it is worth it, for filmmaking (on the Bmpcc 6k). I already have the Summicron R 35mm. 

Also, how would you think they compare versus Sigma 18-35mm 1.8?

No idea myself, but I'd imagine there are a bunch of comparisons made by stills photographers that might help.  With lenses most things that film makers care about are shared by stills photographers, and they have been taking high-resolution RAW test images for a decade or more so the internet is well populated with that information.

I'd suggest google image searches or searching Flickr?
