Sony A7R - lack of small fast primes

Ive had A7R with Voigtlander 35mm f/1.4 and 50mm f/1.1

I like the overall image quality and size of the lenses.

What I don't like :

- manual focus. I say in 30% cases I don't really need AF otherwise I miss the shot.

- vignetting and soft corners are big issues and require boring PP work in Lightroom.

I would really love to switch to AF alternatives from Sony, but the lenses it offers now are just ridiculous.

Why can't they come up with f/1.4 versions of both lenses if similar size as range finder lenses ?

I do really use f/1.1 - f/1.4 apertures to get a nice background blur. I just don't get how you can live with out when doing portraits.
