Re: Fuji 35mm f/1.4 close focus and sharpness

This is mine at f/1.4 near minimum focus distance. It's not amazingly sharp wide open, but it doesn't suck either. There can be some CA to clean up and usually a loss of contrast that can make it look kinda crappy relative to smaller apertures, but with a few simple corrections it typically looks just fine. The periphery is typically soft until around f/2, but that's part of its charm. There are plenty of technical imperfections to point out with the 35 f/1.4 when shooting test charts and whatnot, but I don't know of a lens that is as capable of making consistently great looking images. It is one of the very last lenses I would sell off.
