initial lens selection for A7Rii

I am thinking of dipping my toes into the Sony pond (currently a Nikon D810 guy), and trying to pick 3 lenses that will cover a decent range of situations from travel and street to high quality location and studio portraits. If I like, i may sell off the Nikon system and convert all the way or may just end up hybrid. Here is what I am thinking:

Sony 28 f2.0

Sony 55 f1.8

Batis 85 f1.8

I have no reservations about the 55 & 85. Would love to have the Batis 25 and Sony 35 1.4 in place of the 28, but that is an extra lens, extra weight, and $$$. Occasionally the 1.4 on the 35 vs 2.8 equiv dof of the 28 when cropped to 35 would be nice, but the 28 may be a little more versatile (can crop to 30 or 31vs lowest i can go with 35 is 35).

I can always add 16-35 zoom or a 15 and 20-21 prime to the 28.

I can add the 90 macro later, the adapted Sony 135 (or hopefully a native 135 will be offered), and/or the 70-200 f4.0 zoom.

So i am trying to decide if the 28 makes the grade.
