Need some prop advice, 12x4.5, 12x5.5, or 12x6?

I need to reprop my f450 now that i've added all the weight of gimbal gopro and landing gear. I have a set of cheap SF 12x4.5 props that get me hovering at about 50% throttle. I want some nicer props as I dont trust the HK SF's. My motor combo is 3s on NTM 28-30s 900kv. I have 30a afro escs. Basically looking for the most thrust I can get. HK has the motors rated at 1.01kg of thrust on 12x6 props. I was looking to buy some APC 12x6E props but I see they also have multirotor props in 12x4.5mr or 12x5.5mr. I'm thinking i'd rather go with the higher pitch so how will the 12x5.5mr props compare to their 12x6E props?
