The 50 1.8 from Panny - thoughts?

I have been really interested in dipping my toes into the S1R world...I tried it briefly with the 50 1.4 last summer and I found the system a bit huge. I love the ART 50 and used it a ton on my D850. I have the Z7 currently and have the 50 1.8S.

My hope with the S1R is twofold: better color (skintones -- yes, very subjective) and IQ.

I almost exclusively shoot with 50mm lenses. How is the 50 1.8? Otherwise, I'm considering the ART 50..When I had the 50 1.4 with Panny (I had the body for a week) the aperture ring broke and this was just a non-starter for me in a $2000+ lens.

Anyway, curious of impressions or recommendations. I shoot portraits. Thanks!
