Native 85mm PORTRAIT lens - Batis versus Sony - asked & answered?

Hi.

At the outset, appreciate if someone would direct me to a prior thread if this issue has already been addressesd.

I am at an acquisition crossroads between the Sony FE 85mm f/1.4 GM and the Zeiss Batis 85mm f/1.8 lenses. I limit my choice there because I prefer a native lens. My purpose for the lens is solely portraits. Any basis on which to distinguish the two for this purpose? Quality of bokeh at 5.6 and wider? IQ?  Other factors? Sony worth $600 increased investment?

Thanks very much.
