I could go for a compact 40/1.8 - I love my pancake Panasonic 20/1.7 on my GX8 & GX9 - but 45mm is just longer than I want. My prime trifecta is 24/35/85.

Isn't there already the Batis 40mm f2?

Yes, that's a possibility. In fact, I was checking it out earlier today. But, it's bigger and costlier than I'd prefer. A Sony 35/1.8 (and a 24/1.8) to match their 85/1.8 would be perfect. The 85/1.8 is my Goldilocks reference in terms of size, weight, performance and cost. A great value, good performance, and easy to carry all day. And, it's got that barrel button.

Been looking at the Batis 25/2, as well. But, given the small cost difference, I'll probably eventually go for Sony's 24/1.4 GM because I'm pretty sure Sony isn't going to cannibalize those sales with a 24/1.8, and because the 24/1.4 is reasonably small & light.
