I've also contemplated the cv 35/1.4 over the years but since I also have the older cv 35/1.7 (in screw mount) and the awesome 35/1.2 I decided it wasn't worth it. FWIW, after looking at images shot by the 1.4 for years, I came to conclusion that it was a decent lens, especially for it's size, cost, and max aperture, but I felt like the way the lens rendered was also only decent. Not bad at all, just not as good as the 35/1.2 and if I wanted a small 35 I'd use the 35/1.7. If you're after a good manual focusing experience though, it might be worth a shot. They can be found used pretty reasonably and seem to hold their value (like all the cv lenses).

I'm also strongly considering the XPro1, and want to use my m-mount stuff on it, but the fuji 35 looks so good, perhaps as good as the 35/1.2, which is my favorite lens that I own (across a bunch of different systems).
