This thought really pulls us right down to the heart of the matter--namely, that if you criticize the 35G (as I have) you're also criticizing the design strategy that drove the excellent new E primes--the 105/1.4E and 28/1.4E (which I do).

If the 105/1.4E and 28/1.4E have inherited the 35/1.4G design strategy, then it is highly diluted.  I find only a vestige of the 58/1.4G and 35/1.4G characters in the E lenses - manifesting primarily as smooth focus transitions - and consider them to have very different applications.
