50mm 1.8 OSS... or FE 50mm 1.8?

So I'm thinking of getting a bit of a longer fast prime lens to maximize good quality, smoother bokeh than my Sigma 30mm 2.8 can produce. I have considered the APSC 50 lens, but it's $300 vs the FE50 which goes down to $200 frequently and would leave the door open to get a FF later (I presented the possibility in this post where I make my case for why I think I'd benefit from FF).

The APSC 50 is more expensive and keeps me locked to APSC. The FE50 is cheaper and leaves the door open for FF, and on FF would still give me better bokeh than my Sigma 30 2.8 on APSC.

All signs point to the overall better purchase for me being the FE50mm. Can anybody comment from their experience with either of these lenses? Any reason I should opt for the APSC 50 instead of the FE50?
