I like the idea of the 35/1.8, but why not a 35/1.4? Money, cost blah blah blah, but there are no 1.4 Sony lenses for e mount that I can think of, or am I missing something? It seems their fast lenses are 50/1.8, 35/1.8 and 24/1.8, no?

Why not a 1.4? My CV 40/1.4 is wonderful on my 5n, but I'd like some AF!

Seems to me that for most modern lens makers, a f1.8 falls into the entry level fast prime while the f1.2 version is the premium fast prime. The f1.4s seem to be an anomaly.
