Sigma 50mm f/1.4 dg hsm art or Sony 50mm f/1.4 with A77II

Hi. I recently upgraded from the Sony a58 to the Sony a77II. I have the Sigma 70-200mm f2.8 (without OS) and the cheep Sony 50mm 1.8. I don't mind the 50mm but i would like a sharper lens. I like to shoot wide open to get the softness in the images and nice bokeh.

So i'm considering the Sigma 50mm 1.4 DG HSM Art. I have ready that it is really sharp, but i am a bit worried about the bokeh as some people say it's busy and not very creamy? Is there snitter 1.4 lens for A-mount that might be better? I cant buy a lens that's more expensive than the Sigma though.

I can also get the Sony 50mm 1.4 used for quite cheep, but i don't know if the upgrade is worth it from the 1.8? Will there be a difference in sharpness and bokeh?
