I'm very happy with mine as well. It's miles better than the 40mm f/2 that it replaced. I don't have any of the other 1.8 primes to compare it with, though.

When I got the 40mm I already had both 35 and 50mm 1.8 lenses… compared to these, I just couldn’t use the 40. Not that the 40 is bad but the 35 and 50 are so good.

I got the 40/2 to mount on my Zfc, not my Z6ii. It works well as a compact prime. I also have the 35/1.8S and 50/1.8S and they are amazing optics.

Probably depends on what you're using it for. I was using my 40 f/2 mostly for fairly close subjects indoors and ended up with a lot of softness. Stopping down helped a little bit. The 35 f/1.8S is working much better for me in those situations. For street the 40 f/2 would probably be fine.
