Redundant?

Do you think it is redundant to have the 55 Zeiss and the 85 as my only two lenses? I was going to get the 24-105, but if I did that then I don’t really feel the need for the 55... I don’t shoot much landscape but like the idea of being able to. I mostly use the camera for family events, vacations, our dogs and children, and video.

My old set up was simple for me, 24-70 2.8 and 85 1.8 (Canon). I feel like the 55 would work phenomenal for video, so that edges out the 85. The 85 obviously wins on portraits. IMO the 55 is more flexible, whereas the 85 has a singular purpose (although I saw pictures of someone dominating landscape with an 85). So if I still purchase the 24-105, would that take the 55s spot as the flexible throw it on and go lens?
