Zeiss 55/1.8 overkill on A6000?

I've just sold all my heavy Nikon gear (D800, 24-70 and some primes) and is going to buy the A6000. I will skip the 16-50mm PZ and get the 16-70, not necessary due to image quality but I didn't like the feel of PZ and some additional reach and f/4 @ 70mm is also good. Most likely I will get the zeiss 24/1.8, a pancake and a 50mm for portraits.

Initially I was planning to get the 50/1.8, but reading the reviews of the zeiss 55/1.8 makes me think this can be a better option. I will use this lens 99% of the time at 1.8 and shoot portraits. I don't have immediate upgrade plans for full-frame, but I is always nice to have this possibility in the future. Size and weight are not that different either, only price and OSS are the main differences.

Is it overkill to buy the zeiss 55/1.8 instead of the sony 50/1.8 for A6000?

Sony a6000
