Is there a technical (or otherwise) reason why there are no Sony 1.4 lenses?

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!
