I want a fast lens


I have the Sony A7RII and a few Sony / Zeiss lenses.

Zeiss Batis 1.8/85
Sony 1.8/55 FE
Sony 2.8/35 FE

I am looking for a fast / manual lens (f/1.2 or f/1.4) to use with the Sony. I know the Loxia lenses are available but they are not fast enough (2.8/21, 2/35). I am looking for something special, I have every day lenses.

The Leica lenses apparently are no good with the sony but how about :

Zeiss Distagon T 1.4/35 FE.2 , I choose the Nikon because it has an aperture ring, where as the canon version does not.

Zeiss Distagon 1.4/35 ZM, but I think its safe to say it wont work well as its a Leica mount and probably suffers the same fate as a Summilux.

Zeiss OTUS 1.4/28 FE.2 but it will take a while to save up that much money, is the juice worth the squeeze on this?.

Mitakon Speedmaster Mk II 50mm F/0.95 Lens for Sony

Anyone have some ideas ? I want a lens to have some fun and be creative .
