Would it be an upgrade from the Nikon 50mm 1.4G AF-S or the classic ZF.2 Planar 1.4/50?

It’s hard to quantify from the images, it seems the bokeh is good but not actually  like something from the 85mm 1.2L. Maybe it’s the situation where the overall sum is more than individual characteristics?

Was wondering if should go for this lens or for something like the 35mm 1.4L II, a focal length that didn’t use much in the past, or something also clinically sharp from wide open Sony and Zeiss make (50mm 1.4 or 55mm 1.8).

I see many pictures of the 50mm 1.2L, few are shot at 1.2, most pictures were taken at 2 or 2.8.
