A question about shooting at f1.4 and acuity through frame

Yes yes I'm always posting shall I stick with the 18-55 or get the brick or a set of primes. I dont rush things.

I'm leaning towards fujifilm 16mm f2.8 and viltrox 33mm f1.4 and 56mm f1.4 in addition to my 23mm f2

Reason is I shoot a lot inside churches and cathedrals at the moment and am wanting low ISO as possible

My question is a simple one.

F1.4 gets me 4 stops over the kit lens at the long end and aprox 2 stops and a bit over the kit at 33mm

My question is - at f1.4 do you still get through frame acuity especially near to far - z axis - at f1.4 or is it hard to achieve for say a wide shot of half a church interior getting near and far objects all in focus say pews, chancel and far wall

I've never had that fast a lens so no idea
