FA 35mm F2 -vs- FA 50mm F1.4

Ok the search is down so...

I am wanting my first auto prime. I have seen some people having some softness issues with the 50 mm 1.4 at below F4. And I also am not sure about the 50mm length for indoor shots of my little ones. I shot yesterday at 50 mm on the kit to get a feel for that length and there were definately some times it was a bit long.

I have an old 35mm M 2.8 that I kinda like when I can get the focus, but with younger kids the sitting still is not always an option.

Anyone have both of these lenses and prefer the look of one over the other?

I am also very open to suggestions for anything else that I should be considering.

I have the Kit and the DA50-200 and prefer the "look" of the 50-200.

Also what is the link to the sites that compare the lenses... again the search is still down.
Thanks very much for the help.
