Travelling kit : 35/2.8 with 55/1.8 or 85/1.8

Hi.. question about travelling with potential A7iii and 2 primes..

.

The "main" prime I prefer is good quality, AF, light weight, and all around FoV (35-40mm).. It seems to be Zeiss 35/2.8 (120g)...

(25/2 and 28/2 FL too wide, Sony/Sigma 35/1.4 too heavy/big, Voigt 35/1.4 and 40/1.2 are MF)..

.

Another prime I need is for portrait wih longer FL, light weight, AF, and good quality.. I found 2 lenses that may fit with requirement..

Zeiss 55/1.8 (281g)

Sony 85/1.8 (371g)

I am OK with FL or either 55 or 85.. 85 FL will delivers more blur, but 55 FL is more versatile.. 85 is heavier.. $300 price gap of those 2 lenses is in-different to me.. 1.4 version lense are too big/heavy..

But I dont know about IQ, color and skintone, especially for portrait.. which one is more pleasing..

Your advise/recommendations are appreciated.. Thank you v m..
