I don't believe he said it is pointless having a fast 35mm, he just said that 1.4s are (generally) not so good at 1.4 and are better stopped down.

Exactly. Most of these ulta fast F1.4 lenses are not good at F1.4. You have to stop down to F2 to get decent results anyway.

There is nothing wrong with a F1.8 lens if the lens is good wide open at F1.8. Plus the Sony lens has image stabilization, and that's a far bigger plus if it was an F1.4 lens without image stabilization.
