The Polish site optyczne (translation) posted it’s review of the XF35mmF2 WR.

FR-reader umad?! was so kind to go though the review and the Charts, and made a Summary for us

umad?! says it is:
-the second sharpest Fuji lens (close to the 90mm), much sharper than the f/1.4 version all across the frame
-it’s near perfection (Bokeh, Sharpness, astigmatism, spherical aberrations, reflective coating)
only drawbacks are:
-it’s electronically corrected (like those Zeiss Batis lenses ;))
-it has a coma (no problem, as long as you don’t do astro)
-it has a bit too much CA

Here is optyczne’s the PROS and CONS list:

Advantages

handy, yet sturdy and sealed housing.
sensational picture quality in the center of the frame.
reasonable image quality at the frame edge.
moderate lateral chromatic aberration,
no problems with spherical aberration,
negligible astigmatism,
good work against bright light,
quiet and accurate autofocus.

Defects:

a large longitudinal chromatic aberration,
a large coma,
high vignetting,
a clear distortion.
