50mm 1.8 or 40mm 2.8?

he hello,

I have a 6dii and a 24-105 F4 L lens. It’s a nice combo!

Thinking to add one of the above lenses mainly for :

- having a small lens to walk around when i do not want to carry the L lens.

- having a lens that allows for more background blurr and better ability to shoot indoor at low light ( without flash).

What would you recommend ? I know the 50 is a faster lens .. but is 40mm not better for indoor ( and its even smaller than the nifty fifty )?

Which is the sharper lens at 2.8 ? or are differences very small ?

for those with the 50/1.8 .. do you oftem shoot wide open ? Or mostly at f 2-2.8 ?

many thanks for advice.
