Re: Anyone getting rid of their Sony Zeiss 35mm f1.4 for the FE 35mm f1.8?

I'm selling mine, beautiful rendering but is just so big and cumbersome to use i find myself using the little 55mm much more, which doesn't render as nice but I just enjoy the ease of something so small and light. So the new 1.8 is very tempting, though like the 1.4 it seems to suffer from pretty shocking CA, which is a big drawback for video, which i do quite a lot of, so these days i can only really justify dropping big money on lenses that are good for video too.

Question, why does no one make 1.6 primes? 1.8s are nice and really small, 1.4s are huge, would 1.6 not be  a nice sweet spot of aperture vs size/weight/cost?
