FE 35 2.8 on NEX-6

I was planning to buy the new 16-70 zoom for my NEX-6, but with everyone praising the new FE 35, I was wondering if it's more worth it getting the new FE 35 on the NEX-6.

Forget for a moment that one is a zoom and one is a prime, which of these two lens will be worth getting from your standpoint?

I already own an E 35 1.8, and the smaller aperture doesn't really concern me, only image quality.

I also have a question, as this is my first time planning to buy a full frame lens for a APS-C sensor.

Does FE 35 2.8 on a full frame lens also mean 35 2.8 on an APS-C? (not counting the crop factor)

If so, that means FE 35 = E 35, is this correct? Because as far as I know, APS-C lens are also using 35mm full-frame references.
