A 56 mm f/1.4 could be similar in size to Voigtlander's 58 mm f/1.4, which is a very nice manual focus lens that is somewhere in between the the 35 mm and 60 mm in dimensions (but weighs more than either due to its all metal construction).

For those interested in the classic portrait focal length, it could be a great option with a shallow depth of focus compared to the macro lens.

As for one being redundant, I suppose it depends on whether a photographer's priorities were portraiture or macro photography. It might also matter to some whether one lens or another offers faster focus.
