The problem is they cut heavy corners on all new fast primes. The supposed top of the line 24/35/85 f1.4 lenses uses lower cost micro motor with set of plastic gears. The form is exactly same as canon's notorious EF 50 1.4: Micro USM, geared FTM, lots of tolerances. The results are the same too: inconsistent focusing, especially in mid-far distances.

This corner cutting is blowing themselve back like a jammed rocket launcher, BAMMMM!!!
