No argument, montecarlo, that the speed of the 35 would be nice. But as I said above, the pancake form factor won out in my decision. I'm coming from the rangefinder world and wanted to keep my rig as physically small as possible (you know that old saying about no camera/lens being any good if you don't bothercarrying itbecause it's too big & heavy). And I have older screwmount lenses that are plenty fast (35/2 & 50/1.4) should I need the speed, although they aren't autofocus of course. So far I'm loving the 40/2.8 pancake and am very happy with my decision.
