DxOmark (Click here) published the [shoplink 36460 ebay]Zeiss 35mm f/1.4 Distagon FE lens[/shoplink] test results and writes:

With excellent optical construction, including three aspherical elements, it’s a pretty hefty lens, however, that measures 112mm in length and weighs 630g. If you’re looking for top-quality low-light shooting, you’ll need all that heavy glass, however, and it helps the [shoplink 36460 ebay]FE 35mm f1.4[/shoplink] deliver some excellent results.
Achieving a high DxOMark score of 38 points, the FE 35mm f1.4’s performance is excellent and ranks as the second best FE-mount lens we’ve tested. Sharpness and Transmission results are particularly strong, and with decent results in the other Lens Metric categories, it’s an impressive all-round excellent performance from the FE 35mm f1.4.[/shoplink]

The [shoplink 36462 ebay]55mm FE[/shoplink] is still the king of sharpness. Looking at the score comparison I am actually surprised to see how good the much more compact [shoplink 36461 ebay]FE 35mm f/2.8 lens[/shoplink] is. A nice little (still bit overpriced) gem :)
