I shoot mostly portraits so I'm looking to get a prime lens for that purpose.

While Sony 85 1.8 is on my shopping list I'm now looking something shorter 35-50mm, no need to be 1.4.

Reliable (Eye) AF is important, price under 600 Eur / $700

Any suggestions ?

Sony 35/1.8 already mentioned, it has latest focus motors, really dependable AF.

Also it matches really well with Sony 85/1.8 which is on your list. They are made for each other, same switches/buttons and handling. I own both and really like the setup. My latest portraits are shot between these two lenses, check my flickr page.
