Do you think modifying lens shim thickness will allow better wide open perfowhen using the Z7 / Zeiss Distagon 35mm f1.4

I assume that corrective optics could be added to correct these issues. Adding a plain filter on the front of a lens changes the focus plane a bit. Adding one at the rear make more substantial changes. Wider lenses are more reactive.

Here's a post on GetDPI on the results of using a front filter to reduce corner smearing with a ZM 35/1.4. It also has a link in there for a similar thread on Fred Miranda Forums.

I hope that helps to answer your question.

Btw, welcome to Dyxum

you can improve the corner performance of rangefinder wideangle lenses on A7 series cameras by the use of a 5m PCX “front end filter”
I guess same goes for the Z7. Source: Philip Reeve ZM 35/1.4 review
