In the video of Lindsay Adler I saw she has a Sigma 35 1.4 Art AND a 50 1.4 Art.
Doesn't this is obsolete only 15mm difference!

The bokeh/dof cannot be such a big difference for only 15mm, it's only 1 step closer.
I know a 24mm & 35mm is a big difference and also fov, but 35 & 50 ?! I doubt this...

The difference is bigger than you'd think.. here is an image taken with a 35 , 50, 85mm all at the same aperture with the same distance between camera and photographer

Even with the aperture the same you clearly see more and more compression in the background the longer the focal length even though theyre all F/2 not to mention huge FOV difference - different beasts in my eyes.

This comparison is pointless though. These images are all shot at the same distance. You wouldn't frame a shot differently just because you changed lenses; you would move closer or further and reframe the shot the same.

Sure it's useful. It shows the FOV which is a big factor. However, yes, more information such as distortion and blur at a different distances will give one more about the lens differences.
Here is a link to some more comparisons. This one is about distortions of face shots.

I own the Sigma 35 Art and a Zeiss FE 55. Both serve a purpose. I would shoot a portrait with a 55 but not a 35 due to distortion.

10-22mm zoom is useless I guess since that's only 12mm difference?

And why did I bother getting it when I already had a 17mm? that's only 7mm difference!
Silly me :)

Its kind of my thought too. Maybe if the example had 6 pictures with the first set done like he did and then the second set done by moving the camera to get the same framing. I think just the difference in perspective of facial features on the hypothetical second set between the 35 and the 50 would have made a pretty good point as to why one would want both Arts.

??? 24 to 35mm is virtually the same difference in framing as the 35 to 50....

Ok I see the 35 1.4 as a portrait lens + environment, it doesn't have much distortion with the model further away, it's not meant to come close to the model.

Let's make it more difficult : is the Sigma 50 1.4 Art obsolete if you have a Canon 85 1.2L.
Both lenses have the least or no distortion as in the link above.
1 step backward with the 85mm and you have 50mm.

I use my 35, 50, 85 all the time. If i can only take one of these lens, then I take the 50. However, I still prefer taking the 35/85 pair if I feel like carrying an extra lens.

Why need any other lenses then. 2 steps forward and you got 135mm. 3 steps back, sigma 35mm art.

Personally stop worrying about all this. Take shots and post what you shot to improve it. After a while lens/camera doesn't matter much. If you are gear head like most of us buy say a PhaseOne to satisfy the gear thing for a while.
