Canon 85 F1.8 or Sigma 50mm F1.4 for portraits

I am trying to get one of these lenses for portraits and occasional general shots. I have a Canon 6D with 24-105mm and the 50mm F1.8 (I have not used the 50mm F1.8, may return it if I get Sigma 50mm).

Currently both are at the same price range and Trying to figure out which one suits better for me. I am heading that Canon 85mm F1.8 has too much CA and may impact overall crispness of the image (not sure).
