Hesitant to buy the 35/1.4

I've been using my 35L II adapted on the A7rii with really nice results and based on objective measurements, it seems it's a sharper lens than the native 35/1.4 for the Sony system. That said, I do prefer native lenses.

Something I've been curious about in regards to the 35/1.4, how are people testing for right side softness with this lens? What methodology(ies) works best?

I'm not sure I would be willing to sell the 35L II even if I found a fantastic copy of the 35/1.4 ZA but the weight savings are intriguing...

Thanks for any insight you can provide!
