The 45 f2.8 is a single lens designed for FP or a new route?

I really miss the smaller, affordable fixed lenses for FF MILC cameras. I'm thinking to jump on the L-mount train in future, maybe with Panasonic S1 and later we will see what Sigma can do with Foveon. But the main problem theese L-mount lenses are huge, heavy and expensive. I don't need professional grade lenses, and wide aperture at most focal length. I'd build up my system with theese focal lengthes:

-Wide angle fixed lens, between 14-20mm at f4. I'm not a wide angle guy, so I prefer cheap and small fixed lens, with good optical quality. Something 16 f4 would be perfect.

-I have GR as trip camera so 28mm is covered.

-The 45 f2.8, DP2 FOV is my favourite, this is the must have and would be the first purchase

-85 f2-2.8, also a cheaper and smaller portrait lens

-Later maybe a longer 150mm f2.8 or f4 lens

I hope Sigma continue developing smaller L lenses like the 45 f2.8, and give us some affordable options in near future.
