or

18-35 + 50 f1.8 + 85 f1.8

I'm thinking the first combo would be perfect for my landscape and all my everday uses. Although I would want the 85 f1.8 later on for portrait(I would also get a tele zoom in the not too distant future, in both scenarios).

Feel free to chip in...

I really like my 24-120 f4 for general purpose use.  And my 85 f1.8 AFD (older version of the G) is one of my favorite lenses.  For portraits I use my 85 whenever I can.  It is also really good for low light work too.  I have a 20mm f1.8 (Sigma) for when I want to go wider than 24.  How much do you really need to go wider than 24mm for landscape work?  I do use my 20 for landscape work but honestly I use my 24-120 @24 more often.
