I only have the Canon 50mm 1.8 II, what's the next logical addition/upgrade?

The Yongnuo 50mm 1.4 and the Yongnuo 85mm 1.8 can be had for $176.

In dxomark there's no information about the Yongnuo and 1.4 is better than the 1.8 II in light transmission:

https://www.dxomark.com/Lenses/Compare/Side-by-side/Canon-EF85mm-f-1.8-USM-on-Canon-EOS-5DS-R-versus-EF50-mm-f-1.4-USM-on-Canon-EOS-5DS-R-versus-EF50mm-f-1-8-II-on-Canon-EOS-5DS-R__241_1009_196_1009_187_1009

The reviews say it's about the same as the Canon, but the question remains about other differences like reliability and focus.

I use it to ocassionaly shoot portraits and my goal is to get natural spontaneous looking shots, less studio shots. So what will make the most sense, 85mm which will help to change perspective and isolate subjects more, or 1.4 which will help freeze a moment?
