Another lens question: Newborn, 23/2, 35/2, 35/1.4, 50/2

All

we have twins on the way and decided to after much research buy X-T20.

I was debating which prime lens to buy to begin with for newborn photography. After much research decided on focal length of 23mm, 35mm or 50mm. In many threads I read people were split between which focal length is best for newborns, with 35mm leading the pack.

While I actually wanted to buy 35mm f2, at the moment Australia has amazing deal on 35mm 1.4 . While the price on 35mm f2 is usd $435, it is USD 465 on 35mm/1.4, so almost the same. Given that I don't need WR, it feels like 35/1.4 at $465 will be a better buy than almost same money on F2 of 23mm or 35mm or 50mm.

also while I wasn't planning to buy it, a local dealer has a kit deal where I pay only USD $475 for 18-135 lens. That's almost 50% off on. MSRP in the US. So I was thinking of getting it for travel down the road.

It it would be great to get your thoughts on buying these two lenses.
