Buying an APS-C body instead of new lens

I own A7 M2 and a 24mm f1.4 GM. I found that in some situation, the lens is a bit wide. I am considering to buy a 35mm f1.4. After seeing the APS-C mode, I am thinking of getting a APS-C body instead of the lens. The reasons are as follows:

1. Body is cheaper than 35mm f1.4 lens

2. Have a backup camera.

3. Weight is lighter than the lens.

4. My other lenses (16-35mm & 55mm) focal length increased.

5. Higher resolution compare to my A7M2 crop.

Any drawbacks? Please share your idea.
