Budget 50s (especially Sony 50 1.8 vs Samyang 45 1.8) - what's your favourite?

What are your favourite budget FF prime lenses from 40 to 60mm range? It might be Canon mount, not only Sony FE.

Haven't read tests yet, just only watching videos on YT and images on flickr. Some people say that Sony 50 1.8 have slow AF and is optically weaker than Samyang 45 1.8 (new, from Tiny series). Is that true? From flickr images haven't noticed much difference.

Are there any interesting alternatives in budget price range (up to $400) to those two mentioned lenses?

I know Sigma 50 Art 1.4 is an excellent prime, but even used is little over that budget.

Thanks!

Z.
