I was trying out my 56mm Sigma and 85mm Canon 1.8 today, both great lenses.

The Canon 85 1.8 is a sleeper lens for Canon.  I've know several pros who love it for head/shoulders portraits with full frame cameras (a little long for that in a crop camera, though.)  Lack of IS and less than optimum bokeh are its only minor drawbacks considering its price.  I often use a Metabones Speedbooster adapter with the M50, and that combination becomes a 96mm F1.2 equivalent.  (Lots of math figuring out crop plus Speedbooster end results: native focal length x 1.6 x .71=96.6).
