I would get both if you can afford it. I like my 50 1.2. It is pretty versatile. Can be used for portraits, beautiful out of focus rendering, stopped down to f/2, it’s very sharp. Weather sealed and good solid build quality.

50mm has been my least favorite FL, ever! 35mm and 80mm are my fave for portrait for full body and head or shoulder portraits. 50mm FL doesn't make any sense to me, i rather go back and forth on my feet and frame my subject than a dull 50mm prime. however, the latest gen canon teles (II) generation, they are like having primes in that range, such as canon 24-70 f2.8 II. i have retired my "L" primes in that range, ever since i acquired my 24-70 f2.8 II! i know this wasn't your question but i just threw it in the discussion as an alternative
