Do you think the new 35mm f1.8 will make the 50mm f1.8 even cheaper?

It might do because in theory the 35mm is a more useful FL & therefore should be in higher demand. The 50mm has been available for some time & demand may taper off but keep in mind that the 50mm has already dropped in price to a fairly competitive level.

Unless the 35m is of exceptional quality it will also drop in price after a while. If current projections are correct there should be a wider choice of 3rd party lenses on the market next year. If for instance Sigma wre to produce a 60 or 70mm this would hit sales of the Sony  50mm. They would need to have OIS however.
