It isn't a strong favorite, but I'm interested in it as a possiblity. 
I am very happy with the performance of the CV 28/3.5 and am curious
as to whether anyone on this list has had a positive experience with
the 40/1.4 as I consider my options for a 40mm lens for the CLE.  It
is as simple as that.  I want to know what the image quality is like,
how it balances on the CL or CLE body, etc.  Not having one locally to
try out, this is the best I can do to see if this is worth getting, as
opposed to sticking with my Canon 35/2 or getting the Leitz or Minolta
