Help with lenses for D850

Currently moving from Canon to Nikon with a D850 pre-ordered.

For a midrange zoom -

I tried the new 24-70 2.8 ED VR on the D850 in store, it feels and looks very long and out of place even on the large body.

I've noticed the Tamron 24-70 2.8 VR G2 is a lot shorter, and apparently just as sharp.  Would this lens be good enough for the D850?

Wider end -

I'd like a fast, wide prime - primarily for night sky shots, i'm torn between the Samyang 14 2.8, Nikon 20 1.8 and Sigma 20 1.4.  If I already have 24mm covered by the zoom above, would it make sense to pick something wider than a 20mm or would I still be able to notice that extra 4mm if I swapped lenses to the 20 between shots?

Cheers

Nikon D850 Panasonic Lumix DMC-G2
