|I have been using a 35-70 f 3.4 (constant on all focal range) for many years now.
Quite stellar, no distortion, uniform brightness, sharp, light, no flare in any situation.
If I compare the T treatment of such era lenses (I have the planar 1.7 and I have had the sonnar 135 and the wide 28.28 as well) with my sony rx-100's pseudo T treatment I cry.
Old contax lenses had no flare, period. These new T treatment lenses are poor and flare desperatly despite carrying a red T.
I also saw some pictures from the CZ zm 35 1.4 on flickr, there was no flare but the diaphragm would give some starry reflections.
Not much but annoying and nothing I would expect from a similar summicron or an old c/y zeiss lens.
I would buy gladly any glass from thats eries.
18mm wide angle can be had for a human figure, the 21 strangely is above the 1000 euros, though.
Planar 1.7 was described to me by a zeiss engineer who had come to my town to show a telescope as the most perfect lens, well, in 1986: no need to look for the more costly 1.4.
