I am going to try the 40/2 on the Z50. But i am pretty sure it wont beat the 12 year old 35mm f1.8 DX, which only costs half the price. Its an excellent lens, razor sharp even wide open.

I'd be surprised if it doesn't "beat" the older lens quite handily, actually. All Z lenses to date have bested their F-mount counterparts, and the few samples they've released for this lens look better than what the older lens is capable of (my recollection was that the out of focus backgrounds in particular were generally jagged and unpleasing). Plus you'll get to ditch the FTZ.
