Your 35/2.8's performance is probably as good or better than the 40/2. Don't translate the 40/2's rarity and prici-ness to optical excellence. It's a nice lens, but not an outstanding performer. IMO, the 50/1.8 is better. (This isn't sour grapes. My 40/2 is safely in the equipment case.)

All you 35 f2.8 owners, you can come out of the closet, be proud!

I keep mine on my OM-4.  A poor man's 40mm f2.0!
