Interesting, either way a sharp lens with good bokeh is very accurately corrected. I must say if they made a 35/1.4 ZM I might have chosen that over the immensely expensive 35 summilux asph, the most expensive lens I've ever bought.
I really do like my 25 ZM biogon, and from what I've seen the ZF/ZE 35/2 looks fantastic, in retrospect I might have preferred that over the Leica lenses of the same focal length as well! All they need is a better fast 50, and a sharper fast short tele. That being said, they're making arguably the best glass for the EF/F mount at the moment. A 35/1.4 would really bring the fight to Canon/Nikon.
It's a very exciting time for optics, the most recent canon lenses (24 II, 24 TS, 17 TS) are honestly ridiculously good, even though for my purposes a lens without a decent distance scale is very annoying. I can only imagine it'll be a couple of years and we'll have lenses achieving diffraction limited sharpness at very large apertures with fantastic uniform bokeh. Perhaps that will further increase interest in lenses like the 58 biotar for it's unique rendering and swirl
