Having tested this classic prime lens many times, I can conclude that the optics is remarkable. Even better than some of leica's 35mm. Ideal and good enough to be used with the high end bodies of fuji x system.

Bokeh Bokeh Bokeh! I've been shooting with this lens for about 6 months now and it is spectacular. My main point of reference is the Nikkor 35/1.8 on a Nikon D5100.

First rate build and mechanical quality, optics are tack sharp wide open at over 75% of the frame with corners and edge somewhat lagging behind. Sharpness at f/2 is the same as f/1.4 but there is slightly less corner falloff. By f/2.8 edges and corners show visible sharpness improvement and by f/5.6 they are at peak performance. That said, I'd consider f/2.8 the widest aperture for seriously critical landscape work across the frame and f/1.4 ideal for low light reportage, street shooting and ...
