Re: SELP18-105G: Best option for travel?

I suppose having a 16-70z + 10-18 f4 + 35f1.8 or 24f1.8 would be a dream kit for travel, but It would cost more than 2.000€ for me and I can't spend that much.

I could spend... let's say around 500€ in lenses right now. So could spend it on:

A: 18-105G: I can get it for 490€. As I shoot mostly when traveling and I don't like swapping lenses on the go, this lens could be convenient to improve the quality over the kit lens, and most of my pictures could be covered with that range. I would do 100% of my photos with this lens. from wide at 18mm to portrait at 70mm f/4 to 105mm.

B:  a couple of primes. Maybe 16f2.8+UWA + 50f1.8. I think I would do 80% of my photos with the 18-55 that I have, 10% with the UWA and 10% with the 50f1.8.

C: A prime + 55-210.

How would you spend 500€, considering that I have only the SEL18-55 + sigma 30mm?
