Im working on filling in my prime lineup, currently have 18f2, 23 f2, 27 2.8, 35 1.4

Was thinking about adding in a 50mm f2 to round it out and have something for portraits. Im wondering if anyone has input on how much bokeh I would get with the 35 f1.4 at f1.4 vs 50f2 at f2

Would you guys grab this lens or go for something longer like the Viltrox 85 or Fuji f2?

So called bokeh is difficult to measure. Sometimes bokeh Is there  , but does look so smooth...

50f2  is probably better for  portraits - 30f1,4 is a popular good lens. Read OpticalLimits tests. Amount of bokeh is probably very similar, quality different  - lenses are different.

I own 55f1,2 and that lens really has exceptional bokeh -  BUT f1,2 is often difficult to use, DOF too shallow too often . Now I would buy the cheaper and very usable 50f2
