Why doesn't Sony use smaller sensor surface advantage from NEX system to build f/1.2 35mm lens,  and 85mm f/1.4?

If you are willing to go fully manual, you can get excellent quality, high resolution, compact 36mm/1.3 right now, and it will cost you about $315. Here is the DIY solution:

Not so great on APS-C, but very good FF lens

Add to the lens 20mm of focal reducer:

when attached to 50/1.8 lens makes it 36mm f/1.3
