Looking to dive more into portrait photography... Options?

Hello!

I am looking to get more into portrait photography and evaluating my options. Right now I have the 35/1.4 which is great and a vintage manual Nikon 50/1.8 where I enjoy real manual focusing and slightly soft faces.

With the Fuji 56/1.2 II introduction, price for used Fuji 56/1.2 has somewhat gone down (<500E) and is looking quite interesting. On the other hand there is the manual Artisans 50/1.2 at less than 100E (!!). I know its sucks at corners, but it will mainly be for portraits..

Then there are all the middle solutions such as the very sharp Sigma 56/1.4 (lacks an aperture ring though) and the Viltrox 56/1.4

Any suggestions?
