Sigma DG DN 35 1.4 vs sony GM 24 1.4

have a7iii and a7c + the below lenses

  • 14-24 2.8 sigma
  • 17-28 2.8 tamron
  • 28-200 2.8 tamron
  • 45 1.8 samyang
  • 90 2.8 sony

was looking for a new prime primarily for talking head videos to help isolate / blur background. Previously had the sony 35 1.8 but sold after i got the samyang 45 and then regretted it (miss the 35mm fov and shallow dof)

The GM seems more versatile in that i can use in crop mode to make 24-~35mm if out and about traveling. But think likely will have a zoom instead of a prime most of the time. The only concern is focus breathing which may or may not be an issue based on my research.

sigma 35 is much heavier but ~500 cheaper

alternatively was also thinking of the sony 20mm 1.8 since i enjoy landscape and astro, but already have a couple wide lenses.

for video what would you suggest and why?

Sony a7
