Andrew, I don’t have V4 35cron and never tried V4, but from MTF, it looks very good once stop down. By seeing image taken at f2, I don’t feel it deserve ‘king of Bokeh’ title Carstenw was point out that person name it clarify later that he was referring slow down Bokeh.
The thing that drove me nuts about my 35 V4 (made in Germany) was that it focused past infinity. I was warned by Steven Choi at Steve's Camera that older 35s have infinity issues when you get too picky on the M9, and, sure enough, I had issues when my 35/2 V4 arrived. I sent it to DAG for CLA (it had some focus ring issues,) and, when it came back, it still focused past infinity at f5.6. When I asked DAG about it, he assumed I wanted it optimized wide open, and he asked me to send it back for f5.6 calibration, but I decided I wasn't interested in a lens that had so much infinity variance, so I traded for a 35/2 ASPH, which doesn't have these infinity issues.
