I have owned the M 50/1.7 which is (optically) the same as A 50/1.7.
Today I own the K 55/1.8 which is in a different league if you ask me. Its bokeh and colors are much nicer.

Kind regards
The 50/1.4 has quite a nice bokeh also(I really like it).

SMC-A 50mm @ 1.4
Damned pookee rocks!

All of them are good. But if money is criteria i would go with tak 1.8 55mm

Here are some (most of them i already posted, reposting because they are there in my flickr account).

NOTE: All photos are shot wide open (except one i think).

First TAK 50mm F1.4. I have only use it two times so far:

Test shot

last weekend. (this one is not wide open)

Then tak 55mm F1.8

My beloved 50mm F1.2

hope this helps.
