Judging from the samples here the 40 mm is a step below any of the S lenses, though it still seems to perform pretty good, especially in the DX region.
As for the 35 mm DX F mount, I do not agree with it being razor sharp wide open, not my copy at least. To get good sharpness I noticed that I need to step to f2.4/2.8. It's still an extremely good lens for the price, but I don't enjoy too much using it on my Z50 as the FTZ adapter is just to cumbersome for my taste.

I didn’t think the 35 1.8 dx was razor sharp wide open and the rendering left something to be desired, it’s been like 6 years since I’ve used that lens on a d5300 though. My Fuji 35 f2 and 35 1.4 were also better than that lens… and talk about rendering on the latter, a sweet look.

Here is a sample shot from my 35 DX wide open, unprocessed, right from the camera.
