Recommended 50mm (or thereabout) lenses for A7C

Very excited, just ordered a new A7C. This will be my new AF system to complement my MF film and range finder

I ordered a sony 35mm f1.8 lens with it. Seems the best balance of size vs performance for my taste. Tempted by the new sigma 35mm f2 and samyang 35mm f1.8, but went with the sony.

Now i need to turn to 50mm lenses and am totally confused

1. Sony 50mm 1.2, great but too big and heavy

2. Samyang 50mm 1.4 - big but good value. I think a bit too big

3. sony 55mm f1.8. Is the extra 5mm too narrow ? probably not. Seems a good size

4. Samyang 45mm f1.8. Cheaply made but good size. How is performance ?

5. sony 50mm f2.5. This looks very interesting. Is f2.5 too low on bokeh ? how are folk finding it

6. sony 50mm f1.8. Seems a big cheap, but is it good ?

7. sony 50mm f1.4. too heavy ? or how is it on the a7c

8. sigma 50mm f1.4. seems a DSLR convert. A bit heavy for me

9. sigma 65mm f2. Long FL but intriguing as a pair for a 35mm !!

What do you guys think ?

Have I missed anything out ?
