Canon - 35mm f/1.4 vs. f/2.0 bokeh @ wide open

Canon EF and EF-S Lenses - Canon Digital Photography Forums - photography-on-the.net
I recently upgraded to 6D. On my 40D, 28mm f/1.8 was perfect general purpose prime.

I quickly found that it is just too wide on my 6D and bokeh isn't as smooth as I want it to be so now I'm debating between Canon 35mm f/2.0 IS and Sigma 35mm f/1.4

I know both are excellent in sharpness and image quality so the main factor for me is the bokeh at wide open aperture. Sigma will obviously produce better bokeh but is it noticeably "creamier" than @ f/2.0? Is the better bokeh difference between 1.4 and 2.0 worth $300+ price difference to you?

Other inputs about sigma vs canon would be also appreciated.
