35mm Macro is sharper, you just can't compete with a macro lens in sharpest, i'm sorry.

i'll go with the 35mm

When I first got the 43 Ltd I was wondering what all the fuss was about and thought I might sell it on. Now I know and there is no way I'd sell it. 43 is a much more useful FL than 50 and the sharpness is so acute that you can easily crop all the way down to 100% !

Not the greatest for landscapes but still works.
