Any chance of a 35mm 1.8 / keep my Sigma 35mm?

As a new Sony convert it feels like there's a gap for a lightweight / high quality / manageable cost 35mm 1.8 pitched the same as the 55mm 1.8 and 85mm 1.8.

For indoor family events and the like I'd love to be able to go out with only the 55mm and a lightweight 35mm.

The 35mm 1.4 looks great, but not lightweight and expensive
The 35mm 2.8 is slow for a prime, soft in the corners wide open
The 28mm 2.0 is a bit too wide for my liking

I have a Sigma 35mm 1.4 Art that I decided to sell, but now am wavering.

Any talk of a forthcoming lightweight 35mm 1.8 that I've missed. Any other options?
