In this paper, we present a rigorous analytical solution for the bi-aspheric singlet lens design problem. The input of the general formula presented here is the first surface of the singlet lens; this surface must be continuous and such that the rays inside the lens do not cross each other. The output is the correcting second surface of the singlet; the second surface is such that the singlet is free of spherical aberration.

Do you think my CP2s will be worthless when random Rokinons can render better sharpness on every inch of the imager in 10 years?

Nah, you're CP2 will become even more valuable because it has optical imperfections that narrative projects love.
