Where does all this hate/dislike for the 35/1.4 come from? (some pics...)

Any Walmart Nikkor as good as the 35/1.4 I just read. So where does the 35/1.4 really stand these days? For some it seems to be a reasonably solid lens - and for other it's the "meh" lens of the century.

Dunno but why so much passionate dislike?

All images here taken with the 35/1.4. I have used Nikon cameras from 1984 until 2013 and must say that I never had a 50mm el-cheapo that got me anything like these ...

Guess I must be deluded which could be a perfectly acceptable explanation?? (I think the 50/1.4 and 1.8s I had had quite a bit of "nose" distortion e.g. close up portraits liek the last image posted here were near impossible.

Now THAT was magic!!
