while, looks like i'm the lucky guy, my 2nd copy of FE 35/1.4 ZA is 'perfect' copy, all - 4-corners are sharp from f1.4, almost the same as fe50/1.4.

If you find a good copy, fe35/1.4ZA is amazing, including sharp-corners and blur

but I have to say , fe 50/1.4 looks like have much better quality control: as I have bought 2 copies, 1 for friend, both are sharp and almost 100% consistent between 2 copies. and played with my another friend's copy, sharp corners as well... (total 3)

Unfortunately I'm in love with the 35mm FL.

If a few copies of the Distagon don't satisfy me, I'll have to try my luck with an MC-11 and a 35/1.4 Art. I'm just worried about AF performance.
