What does matter?   Seems you should be able to answer  your own question depending upon that.

I like this (dxomark) as a starting point:

 

you can narrow your search by various criteria, like focal distance/range, aperture, mount-type, manufacturer and many more. Then you can sort the results by price, overall score and/or various image quality sub-disciplines.

If price doesn't matter, get the most expensive cuz

you will sleep easier. The differences are not really 

very significant in the final result anywho. Sleep is 

far more important than theoretical IQ advantages.  

Sleep aids the creative juices. IQ aids nothing.  

   

If you have a serious need to know, I don't see how 

you anticipate useful advice without describing your 

usage. But depending on usage, the main choice is  

between fully robotic lenses and manual lenses cuz 

robotics are a PITA if you don't really need them.

I had the 35 1.4, it was a great lens on the α6500 with an equivalent focal length of about 52mm.

 

When I upgraded α9 I stopped using it, I like the 35 focal length but I wanted something smaller for a general walk-about lens. I switched over to the 35 f2.8, it’s very compact and gives me the shots that I need.

Nice lens! How does it balance with your A7R III? I do street with a 28 and 55 so I'm searching for a 35.

for me it works very well , of course the lenses are big but easy to use on the body
