D800/E with 35 1.4G - Anyone using this combo?

Anyone using this combo? I have read reviews of the lens which seem to fall into either love it or hate it.

In the early days of the AF problem Ming Thein wrote about issues with it but he was experiencing AF difficulties with a number of lenses at the time. LensRentals on the other hand seem very pleased with it.

I have the 50 1.8G which is great but it is a proving a little long and am looking at this as an alternative. I understand that it has very good color and contrast as well which should be better than the 50. Would very much like to hear any D800 users experience with this particular lens.

Any corner softness? Quality of bokeh? - some reviews have criticized bokeh wide open (Mansurov) but say it is quite good stopped down to f2.8...

Thanks for any feedback on your experiences with it - much appreciated.
