Pulling the trigger on the a6500, last question - kit lens?

So B&H (and others) now have the a6500 at $200 off.

My kit will eventually include:

  • 18-105 (right away)
  • 10-18 (soon)
  • 70-300 (eventually)
  • and either the Sigma 16 F1.4 or the Sony 28 F2

Question 1:  Do I pay the extra $100 for the kit 16-50?  It would give me 16mm until i buy the others, but with the lenses listed above would I use it?

I know, hard to answer for me.  I shoot animals, people, landscapes, things, indoor and out.

Question 2:  Which for the Sigma 16 or Sony 28 do you think would be better for indoor family shots around the holidays.  Worried 16 might be too wide for individuals (of course I can get closer though)

All thoughts are welcome.
