Sony 35mm 1.8 vs Sony 40mm 2.5 G vs Sigma 35mm f2

I'm looking to buy a 35mm lens for the A7C for everyday family photos and I'm torn across these three lenses.

My investigation led me to the following summary

Sony 35mm 1.8:

  • Good quality
  • Lightweight
  • Very fast AF
  • Sometimes busy bokeh

Sigma 35mm f2:

  • Best build quality
  • Aperture ring
  • Slightly better bokeh
  • Good AF
  • Heaviest

Sony 40mm 2.5:

  • The worse of three in IQ
  • Blazing fast AF
  • Smallest package

Dustin Abbot and Fred Miranda recommend the Sigma i35 f2 the most but my brain keeps telling me the Sony 35mm 1.8 will be the safest option.

Can anyone offer their opinion?
