Best 40mm for A7?

Hi everyone, I have a simple question: what's in you opinion the best 40mm for my A7 and why?

I own a Hexanon 40mm F1.8, I love it, small and elegant, but it is terrible wide open and is one of those copies suffering from a jagged bokeh stopped down to 2.8 and 4 (the apertures I use the most). I could look for a copy with a better iris, but I'm open to other possibilities

I really would love to have a nice 40mm, that's my favourite focal length. I already have 35mm and 45mm covered, so the question is really about a 40mm alone. It should be sharp at F2.8 and doesn't have to be necessarily faster than that. It should be available in Europe.

Thanks for any input you can give me!
