As per this review https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S4ay-t8UMOQ the 35mm f/1.4 isn't good at 28cm wide open

To those who have it, do they have the same experience.

From what distance onwards it has its usual sharpness ?

My copy seems to be slightly better at the center than the results of the one in the video at 28cm wide opened. But anything outside the center is similar. Having said that, I don't plan to shoot portrait at 28cm.
But it's good that you brought this issue up. At least next time if I ever need to use this lens as a pseudo-macro lens for closeup shots, I know that I need to shoot it at F2 or above.
