Comparing sharpness of lenses with different focal lengths

Just bought a 35/1.4. I don't have a same focal length lens to compare the sharpness, but I have a very sharp 50-ish lens. I'd be satisfied if the 35mm sharpness can match the 50mm. I just back some steps to take the shot with the roughly same frame as the 35mm photo, and compare the sharpness. It seems not so scientific. Is it good enough to estimate the 35mm sharpness in this way? It seems the sharpness pretty equal. I feel good anyway.
