I want to have just one prime lens which one to buy?

I used to have 3 Canon primes 35/2.0; 50mm 1.4 or 1.8, and 85/1.8 which covered all my needs. After switching to Sony I have Tamron 17-28, Sigma 24-70 and Sony 70-200 and no AF primes.

I have a manual Meike 50mm 1.2 which is a good manual lens but has no AF.

I am thinking about getting just one prime lens since I already have plenty of zooms. What should i choose? I am interested only in 35-85mm range and no macros. There are too many options.

It seems that my lens either needs to be compact or bigger but with f1.4 or 1.2. I want to buy it used and pay no more than ~600$.
