Sony 85 1.8 or original Sigma 85 1.4 EF?

I've just acquired a slightly used A7iii with a number of lenses, one of which is a copy of the original Sigma 85 1.4 DG HSM... well-used, but working just fine with MC-11.

Having been shooting MFT for 18 months, the Sigma is very heavy... or my muscles have atrophied!

Just wondering whether I would notice much difference in performance if I sold the Sigma and went for the Sony 1.8 instead.  Anyone with experience of both?

I don't shoot a lot of posed portraits... more street, travel and evening events.  Given I have a 55 Zony on the way, maybe I don't need an 85 at all!
