Abhijeeth, it is still very early days for me with the 35, so read what I say with a grain of salt.
My take on the 35 is rather different than was published by the learned Lloyd Chambers and confirmed by MTF-master Luka. It is a very easy lens to use, at least with my standards and expectations.

Thank you for this extensive and very helpful write up, Philippe! I always looking forward to your impressions of the new 35 ZE and samples you post (keep on going with posting samples!).

At least the bokeh of the new 35 ZE seems to be obviously better and reminds me a lot of the Sigma 50 1.4 (as well as the whole rendering of more open apertures; I would expect them to be different stopped down with more detail in the ZE).
