The best 50?

The Sigma ART 50 is my favorite lens in Nikonland. For my Sony I have the 55 Sonnar. It is an amazing lens, but I skew more towards environment than isolation with my portraits and 55 feels long. I also have the 85 and these two feel close enough. I’m tempted by the Sigma 50, but I hate the giant throats on these lenses - they look and handle goofy. I wonder if this is another issue with Sony’s mount sizs 😬

So I’m considering their Planar 50 1.4 or maybe something adapted. I shoot either open or stopped down to 2.2 when closer. I’ve also considered selling the 85 and grabbing the 90 Macro for portrait work. This work widen my range a bit. What do people use for their ideal 50? Thanks!
