I haven't followed your work with other gear, so I can't comment on that. I just think those last shots don't look good. Lots of CA, smudgy transitions from sharp (which doesn't look very sharp) to unsharp and weird colors.
I don't think the images are boring; I'm just curious if the Speedbooster degrades the performance of the lenses or if it is because of PP.
With some crops, perhaps we could help you make it look better. It doesn't have to be boring to enhance the look, I promise!

I actually think the picture from the Distagon 18 looks quite good, and even from this web-sized print it looks very classically Zeiss. I agree though, that the 35/1.4 shots don't look quite right to me. Actually, at the risk of offending folks, I have to say I'm very interested in the Speedbooster conceptually, but from the images I've seen from it, it doesn't capture the full-frame look for me quite right. I'm primarily interested in shooting FF with fast aperture lenses just stopped down a little: that gives you a combination of shallow depth of field and image clarity that's difficult to replicate on APS-C. I haven't seen that sort of aberration-free clarity in a lot of the SB shots. I hope I'm wrong, because it would be a great option in a lot of ways.
