Re: Distagon 35mm f1.4 - Personal Experience

After testing 4 different samples (in a shop or at a seller's place before buying) I bought the fourth one, the only one that would be sharp centre, left and right but with a tilted focus plane, as almost any other sample.

My main gripe is that it's very big and also quite heavy, so I'll only use it when I need the wide apertures or the smooth bokeh; the FE 2.8/35 is my default, I use it a lot more. The 1.4/35 gave me some very fine images in difficult conditions indoors, wide-open or at f/2.
