Looking for small, fast, sharp wide open 35-42mm lens

I am looking for reasonably sized (not longer than 6cm, not heavier than 350 gramm, faster than 1.7, 35-42mm (preferably 40mm) lens, which is sharp wide open. Reasonably priced (not Leica 35/1.4 price!).

i have CV 40/1.2, love it, great lens for what it is, but not sharp wide open. Not even in center. And this prevents it from becoming “lens cap” for me :). There is also CV 35/1.7, which is sharp, but not light enough.

is there anything from legacy glass?

shorter flange distance - better (but not shorter than Leica M).
