Just to confirm...there is not a single A or E-mount 85mm 1.8 prime lens, right?

I have a Nex-6, and am considering an A7.

I've looked everywhere, but just wanna make sure....there is not a single 85mm 1.8 lens for Sony A or E-mount that auto focuses, correct?

I'd love to have one for indoor high school sports.

I know there is the SAL85F28, but using that with the LA-EA4 (which loses another 1/3rd stop), makes it too slow for high school basketball (IMHO).  Of course there are 1.4's, but they are pricey, I'd much rather have a 1.8.

Thanks...
