Re: Lens variation or something else?

The 35F2 is sharper in the center wide open than the 23F1.4. This is per Fuji's own MTF charts:

At similar apertures though they are both pretty sharp with the edge going to the 23 for edge sharpness.

The 18-55 lags both in optical quality (as most zooms do) at all apertures:
