FE 50 F1.4 ZA vs Nikon 58 1.4G

I recently aquired the 50, but after some months I’m not sure that it’s the magical bullet I hoped for, for my kind of shooting (candid portraits) it’s worth the weight compared to the 55, but still not giving me the same thrill as 85GM and 105E, might be that I cannot handle the focal length good enough, even though it used to be my favourite before I could afford longer fast primes.

When browsing the web for pics, I see more to my liking from the 58 than the Sony 50, but it could obviously be due to the # of pics.

Anyone that have used both of these lenses who could share their experience or any other suggested 50-some lens with AF ?
