I think what you are looking at is equivalent to something around 35/1.4 on a full frame camera. I think such lens for FT (~15/0.7) would be big, very expensive, and economically not necessary. Doubt if it could even AF on its own. It would simply be easier to buy a full frame camera, then spending a fortune on one such lens only.


You might be right. I am not looking for razor thin DOF though but would like a clear subject isolation effect with a wider view.

You would be surprised how deep the DOF at 35/1.4 on FF is, if you do not focus too close. The background then is not obliterated but still recognizable, which has a lot of potential for interesting photos. Unfortunately, the bokeh can have double lines sometimes, and one has to be careful how too shoot.
