This has been incredibly useful.

The Voigtländer 40/2 sounds good, but it probably a bit too wide for me. I don't work as well at 35mm, and 40mm isn't that much different. When I'm on the look out for a 35mm I'll definitely consider it, though.

The 60mm 2.8 looks good, but possibly isn't fast enough to give me the very shallow depth of field I'm after. This is also a slight concern with the Zeiss 50/2.

Has anyone used a converted Leica R 50/1.4 on a Nikon D3/D700 or D3X? What's that like? How does it compare to the M ASPH?

I'm thinking I might just get the 1.8G to cover me for now, and see what comes out. Unless anyone's got a 58mm Noct that they'd be happy to part with for a few hundred dollars!

I see SLR Magic have just launched an M mount 0.95 that's reviewing well - I wonder if they'll make an F mount version.
