Good info to know, thanks everyone for sharing your impressions.
Alf, I'll check on the Tamron. I recall seeing that one in the mags somewhere. They (MP) were pretty blown away with the 300/2.8 FL-F though. I think it was the best they had tested in that focal length from anyone up until that time.
Did the optical formula of the Nikon 35 1.4s change over time, I wonder? Presumably AIS would be the best version...?
The 35/1.4 did change early on, due to use of radioactive elements in the earliest Nikkor-N versions, it was recomputed sometime in the early 70's. From the K through the AI-S the only real change was the aperture, the AI-S version getting a 9 blade aperture versus 7 blades on the K and Ai versions.
