Why do you even care?

You just bought a Fuji X body, and the 35 is the dedicated normal lens for that body.  its simple- if you are not sure that the lens is good, don't buy the body...  Lenses make pictures, bodies just record them.

Yes, by all accounts Fuji 35 is very good.  I hope that's why you bought the XE-1

I just ordered a silver body X-E1 saturday, hopefully it's on it's way. I want to pair it with the 35mm 1.4. I was wondering the 35mm 1.4 stacks up against some of the best 50mm lens such as (Nikon, Canon, as well as Leica 50MMs) ? And is it really optical wise and image quality wise the best out of the 4 fuji lens that's available (vs 60mm, 18mm, 18-55mm) ?
