As I mentioned, we are aware of the non-Canon offerings, and that was not the point of the post. Hopefully the Sigma 35 1.4 will avoid the AF inconsistencies and QC issues of the APS-C 30mm.
Back on topic- Firstly, Nikon does have a 35 f/1.8 and a 35 f/1.4- they seem to cohabit happily. They fill entirely different niches in the line-up. Secondly, if the 35 f/1.8 is APS-C, then it doesn't step on it's big brother's toes. Thirdly, the 35 f/2 is really old and clunky. The fact that we readily consider Rokinon and Sigma should worry Canon into getting something inexpensive and efficient (especially for videographers for whom the MF of Rokinon or AF issues of Sigma should be a non-issue).
On the other hand, they might consider the 24 and 28 IS lenses to suffice and stay put
. In that case, I hope the 35 f/1.4L II comes out soon and brings the I's price within reach...
