18-135 or ZS200

I would frequently take portraits with shallow depth of field so a fast prime such as 35f1.8/50f1.8 is a must. However, I also need to take some wide or tele shots from time to time, especially while travel. I'm thinking about two options:

1. A6000+ prime + 18-135

2. A6000+ prime + ZS200

The benefit of 2 is that no need to change lens and ZS200 is pocketable so it is much easier for travel (it also covers more much tele end). Comparing with 18-135, ZS200 would lose about 2 stop of light but is it significant given neither would be good for low light?

Which option would you choose?

By the way, just noticed that 18-135 is on sale by 100 USD on Amazon right now.
