Normal for 35mm 1.4? Please comment...

After contemplating for a long time, I broke down and bought the Canon 35mm 1.4L.

But I want to make sure that I got a sharp copy. So, I did some testing.

35mm @1.4

35mm @1.8

85mm @1.8 (for reference)

I thought surely 35mm 1.4 @ 1.4 would be at least as sharp as 85mm 1.8 @ 1.8? But from this testing, my 85 mm @ 1.8 is sharper than the 35mm @ 1.4. Is this to be expected or is there something wrong with my copy?

@ 1.8, both lenses look similarly sharp...

If you own this lens (35mm), please comment.

Thank you.
