Which 50mm from Product Photos?

I want to buy a high quality 50mm lens to use with my Sony A7III for product photography. I am wanting to use it for flat lays but also for some videos indoors. I don't need fast autofocus but focus breathing I would like to avoid.

I shoot with a small aperture f/11-f/16 typically and of course have full control over the lighting. Sharpness across the frame is important to me.

I am considering the following lenses:

50mm Sigma f1.4 Art

50mm Zony f1.4

50mm Sony Macro f2.8

50mm Sony f1.2 GM

55mm Zony f1.8

Any others I should consider?

When these lenses are stopped down will there be a big difference in sharpness across the frame? I hate to buy an expensive and massive fast lens if I am not going to get any of the benefits of it.

Are the Zony lenses going to have bad quality control? Seems like these are known for sample variation.

Money does matter to me. I can afford the GM lens but I only want to do that if I am going to see a significant improvement in the quality of my images.
