Does anyone primarily shoot portraits with the 50mm F2? (vs 56mm 1.2)?

I hope everyone is well.

I'm looking to add a longer prime to my 16mm 1.4 + 35mm 1.4 and have set my sights on either the 50mm F2 or 56mm 1.2. This would primarily be used for portraiture, but I would like to use it for other genres as well (landscape, street, detail shots).

I understand that the 50mm F2 would probably serve well as a general purpose option, not to mention its smaller size, WR, and autofocus capabilities. However, I don't mind foregoing those advantages for better IQ and rendering.

Given that the 56mm 1.2 is most often used for portraiture, do any of you use the 50mm F2 primarily for their portrait work?

Thank you ever so much in advance.
