I think one could easily spend more money and do worse.
It kind of depends on personal threshold for acceptable sharpness. The Contax35/1.4 for example doesn't nearly have the resolving power of the ZE/ZF equivalent, but i still kind of like it. The G35, it isnt perfect but it isn't bad either. It's at least average...
I have a 40/2 in my mailbox, I hope you are right about it.
i hope i am too.
some people seem to have been unimpressed by there copies of the lens, but their descriptions of performance seem to indicate bad copies.
in my experience btw, the c/y 35/1.4 was sharper wide open than the g 35/2 at portrait distance (infinity was a more of a wash). for the price of the g35 i would probably get the sony which seems to perform better in most areas except color (i've never used it though, so i'm just going on the tests of others).
wrt to the sigma, i have to say it's an awesome bargain at the $100 i paid for it, but i never used it again after doing a brief comparison to my g28.
