The solidity of the slab is delightfully balanced by the delicacy of the curves. 10/10

I hope that part of the 'progress' will include a more distinctive Z, z :)

Love the f! Would the top of H work better like in X? (Moving the middle serif.) Maybe Q's tail could be more elegant.

Thanks! I'll work on diagonals, I had them on A,M,V,v right before publishing, but they needed work.
H? I don't know, but I changed it.
Changed Q, but it can still be improved.

Slabs and fins meet quite beautifully! How about giving z and Z some straight corners (bottom left, top right)?10/10

Beautiful slab serif. I agree with what four said about the z, and f look a bit weird.

I love the E.

Great use of the fin bricks, although it seems that the weight varies sometimes throughout (like the x) 9.5[10]/10

Thanks everybody!
@four: I like this solution, thanks!
@winty5: Glad you like the E, but f turned out interesting & different, so...
@Umbreon126: Thanks, changed X,x,k.
@laynecom: Thanks, glad you too like it. It acually looked different at first, so was r, but I wasn't quite happy with them, here's how they looked:

You mix slab and fins beautifully!
This slab never goes out from your unique style.
