A 35/1.2 lens on APS-C sensor... what exactly would it accomplish over 35/1.8 outside of bragging rights?

what exactly would it accomplish? - More light collected by lens and delivered to sensor.

Your logic is weird, why then there are f/2.8 lenses if same could be duable with f/3.5 ones?

I owned 2 versions of 20mm prime lens on 35mm system f/2.8 and f/1.8

What I can confirm - in dim light conditions f/1.8 was capable picking color tones and details that f/2.8 "didn't see". Same difference will be between f/1.2 and f/1.8

Person is taking photos, not camera. When photograph is bad, it's because photographer doesn't know how to choose settings optimal to "own preferences". Then blames camera for bad IQ.
This is same as blaming car about arriving to wrong destination.
