AF Nikkor 35mm f2 D - DUD or STUD?

Dear fellow Nikonians,

I'm interested in any info on the Nikkor AF 35mm f2.
The MTF rating sites give the lens high marks...yet
photographyreview.com reviewers pretty much pan the
lens as a lemon. Several reviewers point out their AF 35
f2's exhibit "sticky" aperture blades and oil build-up that prevent the user from stopping down.

Is it worth picking up this focal length with such mixed reviews?
What do Nikonians who own and use this lens have to say?

I own a 24mm and a 50 mm...and like the 35mm perspective...maybe
the 35 1.4 AIS is the answer?

Thanks,

Ara
