sony FE 35/2.8 vs FE 55/1.8

Any reviews between these primes?  I'm tempted by the 35/2.8 b/c of its compactness and wider FOV.  But at f2.8 subject isolation won't be that great.  Where as the 55/1.8 at 1.8 will give better isolation, but its a longer/bulkier lens.

Is there a review on the drawing character of these lenses?  the usual, micro contrast, fine detail rendering, colours, bokeh, flare control, -- clinical rendering vs some character?

And a comparison on the mechanics, ergonomics of these. Speed of AF, noise?, weight, handling, manual focus performance etc..

Those of you lucky to have both already, could you chime in with your thoughts, observations?

TIA
