If only Zeiss made a special-purpose fast 35 as well as their very large 35/1.4 Distagon. I love the size and rendering of the 35/2.8 Biogon but it's just not the same as a f1.4. That's where the Voigtlander 35/1.4 comes in, being small and 'classic' in rendering.

Eventually, I'll get the 35/2 Biogon because it's supposed to be really sharp, it's just fast enough, and I prefer the milled focus ring and bump to the tabbed ring on Voigtlander and Leica lenses.
