50mm portrait recommendation

I need to get a 50mm lens for my Sony A7r II, but couldn't find an ideal choice. So far, the only viable contenders include:

Sigma Art 50mm (via Metabones V adapter)

Sony 50mm 1.8

Sony 50mm 1.4

The two Sony lenses aren't very great optically, but the benefit of being native lenses therefore has Eye-AF.

So in your experience, how much of an improvement is the Sigma over the Sony lenses optimally, and at the same time, how useful has Eye-AF proved for portraiture shooting (including both inside and outside of the studio)?

Sony Alpha a7R II
