I have an old manual Olympus 50 1.8, will 56 1.2 be worth it paying the extra?

I just bought the 35mm and is enjoying it. The 56m is v tempting, I can live without AF, I find the oly not very contrasty which is fine for close ups as it does not show blemishes

I wanted the 23mm but settled for the 35mm at half price, the AF speed and 'more usable' focal length of the 23mm is nicer but it heaver, bigger and pricer, for similar money the 56mm is within reach.

So far I have the kit 18-55 and more recently the 35mm
