This is very useful, many thanks!

I had a Sigma DG EX 50 1.4 that I sold...someone else here suggested the Sony Zeiss 50 1.4. A friend who is a Sony ambassador has one, perhaps I can borrow it and see if I can use that and skip the 35 1.4 and 85 1.4. w

Thanks, you're welcome. The Sigma you mention has a focus ring seize problem on many samples, you probably did well, selling it. It is better corrected for vignetting than the Canon sibling and therefore more suitable for filming, but otherwise no better. The Sony 1.8 is probably very nice, but generally speaking, f1.4 is a touch more creamy.
