Why not get the Konica Hexanon 35/f2? Its v. sharp wide openĀ and awesome from f2.8 with smooth bokeh (less funky than my 50/1.4 hex). Color is saturated, and contrasty. Some CA in bright light wide open.

Its quite rare but goes for ~$200. Ae version is very rare but should have better coatings than my ee. but tbh the coatings qre pretty good.  I also use it on my konica ft-1 where its a dream to use. This version is far better than 35/2.8.
