Can´t afford 35mm 1.4L, what should I get?

I need a prime for very low light conditions. I'm using the 5D MKII.

I can't afford the 35mm 1.4L right now, so what should I get?

I own the 85mm 1.8, and I could use a fast wide angle. Maybe I could just get a 50mm 1.4 and use it instead of 85+35? I also own a 7D, so I could double the 50mm as an 80mm, But I think I'll miss wide angle anyway...

Fast focusing is a must.

Thanks for your help.
