Initially I would guess that 35 f2 replacement will not be here soon. As Nikon have released 24/1.4 & 35/1.4 then it is logical to release any cheaper f2.8 replacements in the gaps - so 20mm, 28mm. There is a 28mm f1.8 rumoured.

But then I thought that we had a 50mm 1.4G and shortly afterwards a 1.8g. same with the 85mm1.4g/1.8g. So if Nikons strategy is to release a high end prime 1st, pull in a few punters that don't really want/need a lens of that size/weight, and then release a more lightweight version, then yes a 35mm 1.8 may be just round the corner.
