I have read somewhere that the 35 F/2.8 is better than the F/2.4. Written by a photographer having both. The 35 F/2.4 was made by Cosina (known for Voigtländer, not a bad reputation), where the F/2.8 is a real Jena. I have a 28 mm CZJ having the same modern house (it might as well be a Cosina) as the 35 F/2.4, so I wanted something different this time (and more rare, but I bought it serviced).

If it is better than the F2.4 version, then it really would be excellent. My 1980s copy does have good mechanics, an extra half stop speed, very good centre sharpness and bokeh wide open, and multi-coating, as well as the more flexible M42 mount (I have used it both on my NEX 5N and a newly acquired 1970s Pentax Spotmatic F).
