I've found that half a stop gets rid of most of the glow. And I agree about the character! That's pretty much the reason why I still have a 5cm f1.4, but no other S-mount 50s now :)

Hey Bill, I don't think Nikon ever made the Nikkor 35/2.5 in Contax mount. No need to when the Nikon S-mount version will work ok on Contax mount cameras (i.e. enough DOF to cover the focus error).
